Call Center

This is a submission by Elena Castello, an artist who made a surrealistic costume for a video called “Call Center” for the artist Niki Demiller.

In the video, you see a guy, a lonely man, who received a call from a Call Center from another country. He kind of falling in love with the girl on the phone and this call is the only escape he has during the day.

The costume tells an intimate experience of an alienated man in a super connected world.

The costume is a vintage Thierry Mugler suit to which Elena applied many old vintage electric cables. They represent the transformation of the man in a machine (ref. To Cronenberg). I like the idea of the costume being the connection between the human being and the environment that surround him.
