Re: “Human Suspension: The Video

As a cultural mythologist, I suspect the underlying ritualistic aspect of Kat's performance is rife with metaphors for our consideration. Whenever social culture swings (pun intended) in any given direction, there is likely an initiating push from the opposite direction of similar velocity and ferocity.

Both hidden and visual displays of piercings, tattoos, cutting, and other flesh markings certainly are not new. The question to which they are a response is, "What is at the opposite side of Kat's swing that the ritual has come into being?"

A parallel subtext of the story needs more consideration than the text itself. There is a pendulum under there.
