GisMo Girls

I found out about GisMo Girls from Jillian Hernandez. She’s one of the curators of Losing Yourself, a show exploring themes of “loss of self” expressed through technological media (and cross-stitching… more on that in a bit). I was talking to Jillian about immigrant homes and their amazingly disgusting faux baroque furniture, and she suggested I look up the GisMo group, which, though now defunct, was made up of Jessica Gispert and Crystal Molinary (and maybe others?), who dress up and hang out in lavishly decorated rooms, emulating their neighbors and relatives. I’m just sad I didn’t think of this myself.
