‘SUBMISSION’, was heavily inspired by body suspension – a form of body modification – the act of rigging a human body and hanging it from hooks, piercing the body.
Taking the act of body suspension and putting it in a dark featureless background, the composition and context changes, it makes for a uncomfortable viewing experience, the act of piercing the skin and being able to visually see the weight, the strain of the skin working against the hook. The viewer is uncomfortable of being presented a scene like this, the question of consent and non consent is present.
