mixed_media; muk bang
I seem to be falling off the mixed_media train.
But in all fairness, there is much fashion to be covered!
Here’s a fabulously fun fashion video featuring one of my all-time favorite (super?)models – Jessica Stam.
Here, Stam pays tribute to the Korean movement, muk bang, in which a person eats massive quantities of food while being broadcasted via webcam.
NY based filmmakers Tn’T (Tarik Malak & Timothy Douglas), in collaboration with Vogue Korea, wanted to take the first “haute couture” spin on this digital phenomenon.
They mention that the film is also a tongue-in-cheek homage to the glorious days of “porno chic” fashion photography, as well as low-fi internet graphic design, and a genuine love letter to modern Internet culture and Korean food.
Not quite sure I see the appeal, but Stam looks amazing while she has fun playing with all the various dishes.
Now, who said you shouldn’t play with your food?
