To get the full effect of the project, you have to go to the site and watch his four minute fashiony/surrealist kind of kaleidoscope of light, image, and sexuality. I still don't know if it's beautiful or just weird and falsely pretentious. I guess what annoys me more than anything is the title -- I looked it up, and insensate means void of senses, without feeling, cold, foolish...etc. -- blah, wow, ok ... I mean, fashion is all about extravagance, but is Knight really just balling up all of the overused/over-sexualized conventions we see in a lot of fashion pictures and presenting them in a cool little pdf package you can print off and stick on your bedroom wall (he mentions each "print" is number, what?)) ... On a more positive note, the video, no doubt, draws you in. The movement is beautiful, it's trippy in a positive way, and overall visually stunning. I guess what it's lacking, for me, is the ability to become something smarter than what we always see. I realize I'm not the one to talk, but it'd be cool to see someone with so much power and influence give us something new to think about.
