Strangely enough, among the circle of artists I've been hanging with, Yoko Ono has been coming up as a major reference and a powerful influence. My pal Jayson Keeling suggested that I do a post on her. I took a meeting with Shayne from Hood By Air and he brought up Ono out of nowhere as an influence on his personal style. That led me to a train of thought in trying to place exactly what Yoko Ono means to my generation. Is she the cool muso who dropped that immortal track "Walking On Thin Ice" on an unsuspecting audience. Or is she simply one of Japan's preeminent avant-garde artists. Her work as an artist went through tropes that included film, photography, installation, performance and in a manner of speaking, protest. In film school I became aware of one of her short films, "Fly" which featured the eponymous fly crawling around a woman's nipple. What's interesting about Ono's montage of identities and forms is it forms the narrative of a woman moving through life and evolving several different selves.
