Joan Jonas and her influence on my work…

LOOKING BACK at these notes I took I am realising a few things…
1. How closely my following ideas where to her pieces. I did not see all her work but what I read influenced strong creative excitement and energy.
I liked the idea of reversing the gaze. Connecting two ideas… the male gaze and the audiences gaze. This lead to my thinking again on the personal gaze. Looking at self and how we can be our worst critic. The female gaze which is said to often be harsher than that from a man. And the discussion on whether woman really are dressing to impress men or other woman.
