I am not a beauty blogger, but I always have that admiration for people who craft their art with make-up. It’s always surprising how make up seem to do magic too. It’s not always about making pretty faces, but also to add attitude and balance in every color and shade.
Well, I don’t like putting make-up on myself that much, but back when I was still working on Underneath Your Skin, I knew from the start that it require a special consideration for visual appearances, and that’s gotta be done with make up. I didn’t want to just sound good, but also to give flesh to visualize what the song is about. I mean, why not, right? As an artist, you can always add one thing and another to your creation if you think it would help deliver your message better. If you think it could help your audience to experience your work better.
So, we came up with the idea of depicting myself as CJ04, a virtual girl with multiple personalities you can choose to suit your idea of an ideal life partner, portraying the convenience offered from our technology nowadays, how it’s getting more and more personalized, intimate, and…intelligent. But I guess that’s just me when imagining about our relationship with technology in a very near future. Well, how about you? What crosses your mind when you think about the future? I would like to know! :)
