This is not a rule book

Participatory video work, Genext, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, 10 August 2014

This is not a rule book was a participatory video work incorporating the action of head banging as a medium for feminist expression.

Presented as part of the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Genext program, Hissy Fit invited teenagers from all walks of life to headbang on camera for 30 seconds.

The 30 -second footage was continuously added to a generative video that grew over the installation period and culminated in an immersive video installation / punk discotheque, featuring all the video collected.
