Roger Spy 'Did You Go To Masturbation School?' by Roger Spy
Building on his award-winning debut Crystallize, artist Roger Spy self-directs the offbeat video for the provocatively-titled Did You Go To Masturbation School?
Casting his typically sharp, otherworldly eye on contemporary society with a brilliant mix of glam pop, electronica and film, the video filters through the plastic to cleverly make the connection between 90's boy band (im)perfection and the new, fake decade of supposed 'I’m perfection', using Nick Carter as the metaphor for all that is artifice. As the sweeping, anthemic chorus rings out and Andy Warhol first said, "fantasy love is much better than reality love".
Shot entirely within one room, the art direction is inspired, layering vintage magazine articles and pull-out posters into an obssessive mural for the 90s heartthrob. Nostalgic and ever so slightly unsettling, the video is a testament to Spy's avant-garde artistry and ability to smash together pop culture and surrealism.
