A pertinent video which could be annotated in multiple ways by addressing the agency of accessories as a form of empowerment for drag people in a new subjectivity.
Some guiding questions raised by your topic and your in-class presentation:
How will you convey defamiliarization by using the psychoanalytic of Freud through the point of view of the objects?
Do you think about incorporating comparative analysis of drag's objects used in performances?
In your scholarly sources, will you allude to how posthuman drags can reassert their role in society in an "embodied" way?
As you mentioned in your presentation, I would say that the idea that accessories can become a state of becoming into a cyborg figure (machine aesthetic) could be explored in relation to a vitalist materialist approach to a certain extent.
