Impersonators and imaginary companions

" Impersonators are like the rabbit–duck illusion: you cannot see the two identities at the same time. Instead, your perception flickers between the two, and this ambiguity challenges our notion of authenticity. When we confront the image of Kate Moss in the body of a friendly rabbit, are we confronting anything different than the image of Moss anywhere else in the culture?—even if the person impersonating “Kate Moss” is Moss herself, in rabbit costume ?"

Shacking hands with Kate Moss dressed in a rabbit costume and them being abducted by her is no daily staple, yet invisibly real. View how Sam Renseiw overcame this traumata by clicking here, or join the playful bunny in the pinball-alley above. (patafilm # 308, 03'25'', 14.9 MB, Quicktime/mov - )
