My work has been on defining Camp, and what the Camp sensibility involves. My final piece is a film that uses tea containers to convey the most important ideas behind the camp sensibility. My film features quotes taken from literature that has tried to define camp in the past and shows their sentiment visually through the medium of tea preparation and consumption. Included in the film is quotes from essays that have tried to define camp in the past, most famously Susan Sontag’s essay ‘Notes on “Camp”,’ but also from Mark Booth and Richard Dyer.
Camp, what it means, and what it looks like.
