Painting With the Man, 3:37 min, Color, Stereo, Canada, 2017

Freya Björg Olafson je intermedijalna umetnica koja se bavi videom, zvukom, slikanjem i performansom. Njeni radovi su predstavljani i izlagani na svetskim festivalima i galerijama.

Painting with the Man je nastao korišćenjem odela za snimanje pokreta bez kamere, a koje je nosila Freya Olafson. Rad  se vezuje za Iva Klajna i njegove Antropometrije iz 1960.-tih, performanse u kojima je koristio gole žene kao „ljudske slikarske četkice“. Obučen u odelo i kravatu, Klajn će voditi žene dok se prekrivaju njegovom patentiranom bojom (Internacionalna Klajnova plava) i prave otiske svojih tela na platnu. U ovom radu Olafsonova koristi digitalno 3D muško telo da oslika platno / ekran.
