Weird Woman (State 1) (2003-2010)
Genesis P-Orridge: It’s a swastika with um–what’s those plants in Switzerland? Alpine Lillies. So Weird Woman grew out of that. We used to just improvise at night, making up stories to each other. And so at some point we began making videos but when that one was done we don’t remember. It was completely made up on the spot. We were doing something else and then Jay just said, ‘Why don’t you do one of those weird women?’ ‘Okay.’ And made the story up out of nowhere.
