This is yet another older project (2003) that I wanted to repost on my new main page. Dance Club is an experiment in New Media documentary. The project is the result of a collaboration with Shawn Rider, who created the multimedia interface. The project is based on my research and writing, and also utilizes video and photographs I collected on-site.
The Dance Club piece is geared towards exploring the working conditions in gentlemen’s clubs from a labor point of view. This study focuses on the structures involved in the working relationship, and the visual material reflects this by focusing on the architecture and structure surrounding dancers in a specific club.
Multiple forms of media, quotes from a diverse array of voices, and links to the rest of the networked exotic dancing world combine to make this a uniquely web-based documentary object.
