Angela Carter – Youtube Readings

The lecturers on the first Monday back suggested I look at short stories as a place to begin tackling narratives and as a way to get away from overly obvious representations. Since I have been looking a Angela Carter for my Art Practices class I decided to use her, as her short stories are a good length for a short video work; her symbolism is very and strong; and she has very strong feminist themes running through her re-imagined fairy tales. I began by looking at readings from other people to get a sense of how her writing translates as audio.
