Hollywood Infinite is a performance artist and educator from Baltimore, MD. By challenging the passivity of the spectator, Hollywood’s poetic prose and Baltimore brew of indie-pop/hip-hop touches on various overlapping themes and strategies. Her work forces audiences to contemplate and encounter subject matter including family structure, human interaction, female objectification, sexuality, pop culture, and media misrepresentation. She wants to amplify the astonishment of the spectator by creating compositions & experiences that generate tranquil poetic images beside weighted chaotic reality.
