"I stood in front of the monitors watching 75 women stand in a circle, dancing and yelling while two women humped each other. Taylor Schilling, who plays Piper on the show, had hung around to watch the chaos. She leaned over to me during a take and said, “When have you ever seen this many women on screen together?” In that moment I realized we were doing something really special.” (x)

“ There are books that one reads over and over again, books that become part of the furniture of one’s mind and alter one’s whole attitude to life, books that one dips into but never reads through, books that one reads at a single sitting and forgets a week later. ”

You want weird tv episodes that you’ve never seen before? It’s probably been on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. You want a musical episode? Buffy. An episode with no talking at all? Buffy. A good laugh about a demon-hunting dummy? Buffy. What about one where hyena ghosts posses high school students and then go eat their principle? Guess who. Just go watch Buffy you piece of shit.

Play

2006

The games we play as children are rehearsals for the roles we play in life. Traditional toys for girls nurture homemaker stereotypes, simulating traditional domestic roles through play. In these photographs, I am exploring the possibility of the same staging taking place with the prolific, but publicly hidden occupation of prostitution. By constructing these scenes in miniature, I project representations of the sex industry onto the medium of the conventional dollhouse. As polar opposites, the homemaker and the sex worker are highly constructed and restrictive roles, the most deeply-rooted myths of the feminine.
Pieced together from many sources of representation these constructed spaces can be peered-into and examined.

"For her 2006 series, Play, she reconstructs a brothel, a strip club and other sex trade sites in dollhouse scale, then photographs and enlarges those scenes.
Eisen’s settings range from the lurid, like a sparkly-bedspreaded, mirror-walled room, to the bare bones, like a dingy sunken-mattress, wrung-out-washrag affair. In all cases, Eisen fascinates with sheer meticulousness. Bowls of condoms, rows of fetish footwear, piles of porn mags and side tables of toys, lube and egg timers are all convincingly miniaturized …
Overall, the photos give a sense of these places as schizophrenic sites for both far-out fantasy and cold commerce, for potential ecstasy and possible exploitation.”
