Carmen Made Me So
CARMEN MADE ME SO Title: CARMEN MADE ME SO / CARMEN ME HIZO ASI
Co-created with Eurídice Arratia
Year: 1997
Type: Interactive Narration / Web

CARMEN MADE ME SO Carmen Made Me So is a website with a critical approach to the image of Carmen Miranda. Divided into three segments, the first one is a critique to the usage of Carmen Miranda as an idealization of Latin America; the second part is a critique to the exotic point of views of latin beauty, and the third part is a post-colonialist discourse on the identity conflict the Latinamerican culture suffers (this section requires the shockwave plug-in, it contains shockwaave animations developed in 1996).
