Fenty x Savage x Description x Captions

By Uncategorized

This film is an experiment in creative access-oriented media production. The starting point is the final sequences of Rihanna’s Fenty x Savage vol. 2 show, which debuted on Amazon Prime in October 2020. The task was to describe and caption this film in ways that model new possibilities for the aesthetic of access.

A center square portal with purple-pink gradient holds all-caps white letters. REMOTE ACCESS: WITCHES N GLITCHES / FRIDAY, JULY 24TH / 9-11PM EDT. 4 other square portals hold info about the party: ASL / CAPTIONS / AUDIO DESCRIPTION / SOUND DESCRIPTION / ACCESS DOULAS / FACILITATORS; SPELLS: AIMI HAMRAIE / MOIRA WILLIAMS / EZRA BENUS + PEREL; VIBES: DJ CRIP TIME / DJ WHO GIRL; CHOREO: OCTAVIA ROSE / JERRON HERMAN; SHOWS: YO-YO LIN + KEVIN GOTKIN / ALOPEXIAN. 3 objects have an orange-yellow overlay: a glittering disco ball made with uneven glass shards, a cracked early iPhone with an arduino board resting on one side, and a lit votive candle. A magic portal does loops in the background - no beginning or end in the frame. The logo of the Allied Media Conference - tri/angular A, M, and C - is at the bottom of the yellow-ink gradient background. In the top right corner: July 23-26 / 2020 / Virtual. This flyer was designed by Kevin Gotkin using a kit provided by the Allied Media Conference artist-organizers.

I reviewed the recordings from this party over a year later, when I was relieved of some of the mom energy of being-in-it. And I got my time-shifted blessings. And I got to hang with my friends again. And I realized just how fucking absolutely awesome this party was, one of the most lurid memories from that awful and raucous summer of 2020.

happy beltane 2020 mix

On May 1st, 2020, for the first time in 5 years, I was not celebrating the eternal return of spring on faerie land. Instead, I had the honor of DJing a remote global celebration of Radical Faeries across the world. Here’s the set, which I will remember as one of the most meaningful times I took to the equipment during a period of profound uncertainty and loss.
