THE UNTITLED BODY PROJECT • Rae Threat (2018)
THE UNTITLED BODY PROJECT is a docu-photography project created by Rae Threat for the 2018 Level Ground Artist-In-Residence program.
The project is a visual reflection of how society and culture have shaped and influenced our bodies and how we view them. Rae's work will include a short documentary featuring interviews with models of different shapes, sizes, gender, and identity discussing how culture and society has helped shape their bodies and influenced their body image.
THE UNTITLED BODY PROJECT will culminate in October 2018 with a fully immersive multi-medium art show featuring 3D photography on LED panels, a centralized video installation on multiple monitors, and large scale printed portrait suspensions.
Studio space is provided by Evidence Film Studios. Production is funded by the Level Ground residency program.
Rae is currently raising funds for the gallery installation. If you're interested in making a tax-deductible donation to support Rae Threat, please click below.
