Peter, no I did not, but you are right, I should have. But I can't see how, if the presentation is one of ironic detachment, it differs from straightforward admiration. Diana

Did the thought occur that the subjects were chosen on purpose to
underline, as a form of social criticism, the very agism and
ethnocentrism you are criticising?

Peter, an impressive job of video morphing. Not women in art however. Except for Cassatt and Kahlo and possibly one or two other artists, the renderers are men. Not depictions of all types of women either, but only caucasian women of reproductive age. A better description would be White Male Artists' Fantasies of Sexually Alluring Young Women. I have no objection to the subject matter, just the agesim and ethnocentrism hidden by the title. Not accidental I think that when this video ended, adverts for porn videos took its place. Just one step away. Diana
