Wittnerchrome, Exacto Knife, Typewriter

The filmmaker films herself masturbate the object of debate. She hears others claim her body, her habits: those in her conservative surroundings as a child. The viewer claims her as well, by watching her in this private act. She is 9-years old, then 12. She observes popular icons, dismissing the agency of their body; she then rejects the other, objects outside of her body: with some teenage angst, denies climax to everyone else but herself.
