pass the parcel- childrens party game

Pass the parcel is a popular British children's party game in which a parcel is passed from person to person around a circle, somewhat similar in its logistics to musical chairs.
In preparation for the game, a
prize (or "gift") is wrapped in a large number of layers of wrapping paper. Usually, each layer is of a different design so they can be easily distinguished. Smaller prizes or mottos may be placed between some or all other layers of wrapping.

proposed idea: video peice of me playing pass the parcel on my own. Passing the parcel on and off camera and each time the music stops on me, forcing me to unwrap the parcel.

Faye Clarridge - Morris dancers

ref: http://www.photonet.org.uk/index.php?pid=277
These images remind me of the images i produced of myself in the party gear.

Faye Claridge’s work explores the human desire for immortality and the acts of re-creation and preservation undertaken to stave off the passage of time.
Only A Stranger Can Bring Good Luck, Only A Known Man Can Hang depicts Morris dancers from Bedfordshire with their traditional dress and a ‘paradise’ painted and assembled by the photographer acting as markers of time and mortality. The photographs explore relations between living tableaux and photography and challenge photography’s capacity for authenticity by making portraits that both reveal and obscure, document and create.

Semiotics | ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semiotics

Semiotics, also called semiotic studies or semiology, is the study of sign processes (semiosis), or signification and communication, signs and symbols, both individually and grouped into sign systems. It includes the study of how meaning is constructed and understood.

Semiotics is frequently seen as having important anthropological dimensions, for example Umberto Eco proposes that every cultural phenomenon can be studied as communication. However, some semioticians focus on the logical dimensions of the science. They examine areas belonging also to the natural sciences - such as how organisms make predictions about, and adapt to, their semiotic niche in the world (see semiosis). In general, semiotic theories take signs or sign systems as their object of study: the communication of information in living organisms is covered in biosemiotics or zoosemiosis.
