anacam, the internet's 1st 24/7 art+life cam!
(about me and anacam and all that stuff)
REVISED: february 1th, 2007
hello, my name is:
ana clara voog
from my world to yours....welcome!
i'm a paradox (like most people)
and i take the liberty to change my mind about anything i say at the drop of a hat. let me begin by answering some questions you might have:
my name is pronounced (ah-nah), where the 'ah' sounds like the 'o' in bomb; voog where the 'oo' sounds like the 'oo' in broom.
is the internet's 1st 24/7 art-life cam.
it is a window into my house, into my life ( not my life itself, a PICTURE of my life, please note the difference), my art, how i view things.
it is a picture updated every 5 minutes showing what i'm doing right now or showing you something i'd like you to see.
it is not a surveillance thing or a peeping thing, because i have invited you.
sometimes it is more about showing you what is going on INSIDE me than what is going in in my actual physical surroundings. that is why i like to play with the filters and be playful with this medium.
what do YOU see here? what do YOU think this site is about? and what does that say about YOU? :) what does it say about your ideas, morals, ethics, boundaries, state of mind...when you feel and think about this site? that is my question to you...
i am your mirror, it seems.
that's how I feel about this site so far...and that is part of what i've learned and pondered as i've read the email i receive and chatted in my irc channel, and had many interviews.
sometimes anacam will get really interesting for awhile, then it'll go back to being boring 'cause that's life.
just when you think nothing will happen here...bam...something crazy out of the blue happens.
anacam is like the weather...the only predictibility it has is that it WILL change.
i don't do "shows" but i do love to show things by using my cam as a photographer would....i might get inspired by the way the light is hitting dishes in the dishwasher, or by my goofy dogs sleeping upsidedown. and ya sometimes i do put on a wicked pair of high heel shoes and prance around nude in a feather boa..cause dammit i'm a girl and i did that before i had a cam, so there :)
this site isn't about sex, but sexuality and SENSUALITY is a PART of this site because that is part of my life.
but you'll see my dogs or me staring at my monitor glassy-eyed more than you'll see sexual stuff. i'm really good at staring :) and sleeping!
and contrary to popular belief, i am NOT an exhibitionist because i do not get turned on by the thought that others are watching me. i guess you could call me a nudist. i just don't CARE if people are watching me if i'm nude. i don't mind people watching, in fact, i find it rather comforting, especially when i'm sleeping..i feel like you are all angels watching over me :)
i don't feel that my privacy is being invaded since i am in control of my cameras and i am choosing to do this. last but not least: i'll do what i want when i want to. it is not a "show". who knows what will happen?
remember it's my life and i don't owe you anything.
curiousity. to experiment. to study human nature/culture.
but mostly i feel i have a lot of cool things to share and communicate to a worldwide "audience" in a totally spontaneous and immediate way from the comfort of my home.
this appealed to me, since I'm actually an introvert and prefer to be alone. and no middleman! no marketing strategy! no political showbiz bullshit! yay!
i want to keep expanding myself in the different ways i can communicate. i'm an artist to my core.
it was such an intense idea. and i like intense, and i like to push boundaries of what people think a woman is and isn't.
i want to break stereotypes. because i am in "showbiz" people always want to know about me, and they usually get it all wrong and try to put me into a neat little compartmentalized package for mass consumption( and they still do continue to do this ).
it's like having a speculum up your ass and that's all they can see..just one part of my body (and a small one at that!) they can't see the whole picture.
i'm also doing this to say
but mostly, all analyzing aside, i'm just doing this for the pure surreal fun of it. no lie. it's just plain simple fun.
i think i'm more amused by this project than anyone!
i just think this is a fabulous opportunity to share things with you through my art, and in that process, learn more about EVERYTHING!
april 18th, 1966 , but i don't feel any particular age and never have
all my music (5 records) is out of print except you can download mp3's from all my records in the section called "anamusiq" in ana2.com!
i also paint, draw, sew, and write and print out my own little homemade books. :) and crochet hats!
they're dogs. the skinniest one is named named pooka and the more stocky
one is named deiter. the breed that they are is japanese chins and they
are best fluff monsters ever!
so if you don't receive a reply, please don't take it personally! but
i read it ALL! it gives me energy to persevere! thank you thank you
thank you! i hope you can understand. also, i do not read my email until
the very end of my day, so don't send me any requests to wave at you
address that you can send me actual letters (or presents
please DO NOT send anything to me there that requires a signature (like fedex or priority mail) because the person that picks up my mail for me doesn't go there every day. they go there about once a week and I wouldn't want your package or letter to get sent back to you!
if you'd like to subscribe to the moderated mailing list - one that I started where you will get updates and ramblings from me (and no one else can post to this list) go to:
"under the bed" is the private forum on ana2 (www.ana2.com). a great community full of warm interesting people. "under the bed" is like the pleasant coffee shop to relax and unwind and discuss things with your friends.
I designed my website.
designed the shockwave flash intro page.
how can I help support this project?
take some time to go check out what ana2
