Werewolf, Vampire or Frankenstein?

June 24, 2014

For 10 years I’ve been asking a question on my voicemail. It all started with, “Please leave a message as well as: what do you prefer, paper or plastic?”  After a month I’d change it … “would you rather have the ability to fly or be invisible?”  In addition to getting answers and sometimes lengthy explanations from friends and family, strangers would tell me things – that’s what got me hooked. A doctor calling with test results, “…your test came back benign and my favorite cereal when I was a kid was Fruit Loops.”  I haven’t recorded any of the answers for a decade!  So I’m turning it into a little portrait project, starting last week. With camera in hand I’ll be asking random people a question and posting their answer and portrait. The question this week was, “Which would you rather be: a werewolf, a vampire or Frankenstein?”  My conclusion after completing my “monster” research, and yes the term “monster” is up for discussion is:  the werewolf people like to be wild and like that it’s predictable when it will happen, vampires are attracted to being sexy, fashionable and as one woman said, “They’re really smart”, and Frankensteins like the idea of always being in their state of uniqueness. They have time to assimilate into the mainstream perhaps. Hmmm… stuff to think about if you can’t sleep tonight.
