Tyra Banks, On Art as Affect and the Rejection of Character as Subjective Depth

From Modelland:

“Your goal in CaraCaraCara is not to mirror, but to mask. In other words, make the opposite expression of what you see or feel. You see happy…You make sad…If you are tickled, do not laugh. Frown! Mastering this will get you one step closer to being an Intoxibella. But fail, and you will be relegated to spending your life as, heaven forbid, an actress...Actresses are incapable of ‘opposite performing.’ They must think about sad times in  their lives to project sadness on the silver screen. Nonsense! We mustn’t let that pitiful fate happen to you.”
