Studying the pieces made me reflect on stereotypes. Perhaps created with initial gender innocence at the time (Louis Marx toys, mid-1960’s). There are others, many not as good – and it does not appear there are any for girls, only boys. You can see from the video the set that I have are: Army Soldier, Cowboy, German Soldier, Spaceman, Native American.
Does the strength of stereotypes stay with us from an early age? even the plastic representation of one. I decide to blend all five into one as they gather and rotate, then reverse the direction as if going back in time, overlayed with with a thermal look and slowly glitching away.
