The woman was later confirmed as artist Jacqueline Humphries, Oursler's wife. Bowie and Oursler reportedly wanted someone who looked like Bowie's PA, Corinne "Coco" Schwab, as she did in the 1970s in Berlin . . .
Never knew this! It adds another layer of nostalgia and sadness to the video.
I remember just after the release, someone on here thought the woman was Björk. Just watched the video again and looked up the Berlin references and have only just noticed odd things in the studio. That's the thing with DB, there are always ripples and tangents . . .
I was in Seattle, in the library, of all places
And i saw another work by Tony Oursler going up on an escalator
Its the only other work i know by him
