Entry Title: "Death of an Icon"
Category and Expertise: Performance, Professional
Trenda edited the music video, "Express Yourself" by Madonna. She took out all of the images of Madonna and projected them onto a screen. She memorized the choreography. During the dance, a shot rings out and she lies dead on the floor of the gallery for 3 hours. Part of the performance was audience participation, which included the viewer to take photos and film her while she was dead.

We create our own icons to become an imaginative inhuman machine of society. As soon as the icon shows fragility, we kill them in the media. We kill our own icons.
