Jewish Women, Jewish Girls, The Club, and Latina Role Model are part of a series entitled Acciones Plásticas, an interactive performance piece that questions the role of stereotyping in the development of identity. Modeled after low-quality videos blogs, each video features a woman whose life has been visibly defined by societal expectations. The videos are made accessible to the general public through their strategic placement, on all of the popular social networking sites such as youtube and myspace. This internet-backdrop contextualizes the videos by framing them with similarly tagged content. The linked videos, images, and profiles point directly to the heart of the depicted stereotypes.
