Butoh My God I’m Obsessed with the Mess that’s America.
I’ve taken a lot of self portraits but this one has garnered me the most likes. Was it because it was the most striking thing they’ve seen all day? Was it because it was beautiful in a creepy way? Was it because everyone just loves mouse ear hats? Either way, I was pleasantly surprised.
Most labeled this photo as creepy, but there are so many symbolic things in this image. There are themes about America and American culture, which clashes with the Chinese and Asian culture I also embedded in this image. Themes of innocence and sensuality are also present. I guess this has been a successful image because you can keep going back to it and analyzing it to your heart’s content.
