The Afro Asian Action Figure Meets
the Juju Stick
The Afro Asian Action Figure Meets the Juju Stick examines how a totemic object, The Juju Stick, can transform a representation, The Afro Asian Action Figure, into an actual human. The two works featured in the video started with common toys and each make guesses as to how these things might be interpreted by future civilizations longing for a legendary past.
“The rhythms created by the post-civilization device transforms
the prototype for the super chimera into a living, breathing being, beautiful
and pleased to be alive.” Imagery in the video implies a Pygmalion/Galatea
relationship between the bearer of the stick and the figure, the outcome
being a living, breathing woman.
