15. Art Like Gender: Philadelphia

Art Like Gender: Philadelphia

Koomah performs an original spoken word piece for the Blender show in Philadelphia for the closing of the Philadelphia Trans-Health conference. This performance happened immediately after Koomah performed a performance art piece using the rare original version of "Reflection" from Disney's 'Mulan' as sung by Lea Solanga. This performance of Art like Gender was dedicated to Tristan, who sent Koomah a recording of himself speaking Koomah's original poem along with the song 'Hoppipola' in the background. Tristan inspired Koomah to turn the poem into a live performance piece. "ART LIKE GENDER By Koomah gender is like art. it's more than black and white. full of grays and vivid hues. so when is someone male? or female? when is something art? is something art just because you hang it on a wall? something is art when you say it is, when you believe it is. and much like art... gender is gender, is male, is female, when you say you are and when you believe you are. and you are. but like art... there will always be those people who don't agree with you who say that's not "real" art! you're not a "real" man! you're not a "real" woman! I am a masterpiece and you are too. I am a man because I say so, and I am. and maybe tomorrow I'll be a woman if I say so, and I will be. Or maybe I'll be more avant garde more than just male or just female. because right now... I am both. and maybe later, I'll be neither. whatever I choose, whatever I decide or declare whether for that moment or for my whole lifetime, I will always be art." The 1st art piece I hold says "ART?" and can be seen here: http://koomah.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=24#/d1ll2bs The 2nd art piece titled "Human" and can be seen here: http://koomah.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=24#/d1ll6vo.

A short video I made for Diverseworks' (Houston Area Artspace) "Luck of the Draw 9: The Musical!" fundraiser video contest. The video had to be 1:30 long or less and contain some sort of music. This was my first attempt at stop-motion animation. This video was less serious than my other film work and was completed (first photo taken to contest upload) in less than 72 hours. I was one of the winners of the contest.
