That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet

About This Project

Act II, scene II: Juliet uses roses as a metaphor to talk about the body. A body that blooms like spring, opens a few times and other times remains closed, like buttons. Buttons of roses. Button: Cocoon of a completely closed flower. Mammary buttons. Women buttons. The video collage of 1:16 minutes (play in loop) takes borrows the name from Shakespeare “that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet”. the animation begins with an artificial ‘field’ of roses which appear  to the rhythm of Vivaldi’s Spring and disappear, revealing a pair of nipples in the place of two buttons of roses, or vice versa. There is also a text by the Canadian poet Shane Koyczan which talks about the act of opening up: the blossoming of roses to open the body, the feelings, and the historically assumed condition of nature as the root of the feminine.
