Product Description:
Metamorphoses of the Body Video. Physical metamorphosis as a theme in painting, sculpture, photography, and cinema reveals an ongoing fascination with all manner of transformations and distortions of the human form. Ranging from classical to modern times, this program presents zoomorphism; hybrids from mythology, the hells of Hieronymus Bosch, and the caricatures of Granville; "botanomorphism," people as plants; treatments of body as landscape and landscape as body; the personification of genitalia; digital manipulation of images, to model bizarre new races of people; and engineered beings such as Frankenstein-type creatures and cyborgs. (27 minutes.) Art History, Art and Photography 2002.
