This is a discussion I found myself in with a few friends of mine the other night. I thought I would bring it up here to see what an art community would have to say on the subject.
It all started when I showed them Daniel Bedingfield's latest music video, "Secret Fear" (http://youtu.be/nE9ySQRZpGI). At first, the nudity came off as excessive. But after really watching the video and listening to the lyrics, I began to grasp the essence of the message more clearly. Both love and fear can make you feel naked and vulnerable. As if tumbling in confinement through dark water..
In my opinion, this video is more about expressing that emotion than trying to shock it's audience and be offensive.
What are your thoughts?
