/Title of Work/ "She's My (Pop Song Lyric)"
/Medium/ Performance
/Composed By/ D. Jean Hester

/Date/ 2006

My performance text piece, "She's My (Pop Song Lyric)" was performed as part of the 2006 Integrated Media show at CalArts. Over 200 appropriated song lyric fragments beginning with the words "She's my..." present an exploration of the representation of women in contemporary culture.

The second in a series of performances based on appropriated text.
