Previous Page Parent Page Next Page Deacon�s mock video cover is a tongue-in-cheek satire of American war or mercenary-type action films that explores the positioning and objectification of the blak female body in photography and film. The term �blak�, coined by Deacon in 1991, is an attempt to reclaim colonial language by creating a means of self-determination and self-expression.
