What is video art? “Glitter, melted plastic, kaleidoscopes, colors and psychedelia”, young women answer. Glitter Stories drew inspiration from young women between the ages of 17 to 24. Their responses formed a twisted world of it’s own, where girls’ objects become symbols, lucky charms and sometimes millstones; women turn against themselves and each other in throes of the brutal change. The altar built by others must be destroyed in order to build one’s own, to be reborn.
