Kiss Me Click — The Visual Album is ostensibly a series of pop music videos bound together by the narrative experiences of those creating it.

It is an experiential journey of the vulnerabilities surrounding commodification, capitalism and performativity (both in front of and behind the camera). It is a reorganisation of the semiotics of pop music and culture, an open conversation with the people that created it and how we want to construct our own images.

This project would not be what it is without the people and voices who created it — Jaana-Kristiina Alakoski, Victoria Kaldan, Nadja Voorham, Ofelia Jarl Ortega & Bess Barkholt Anders, who wrote and performed the pop songs and became an indispensable sparring partner. Collectively, Kiss Me Click is an open conversation and reorganisation of the codes within a pop landscape that shape our identities.
