Vernallis' Theory

A phantasmagorical body is a body we piece together in our own mind from snippets of the music video. Parts of the artists body gets shown for example their feet, legs or bust. This encourages the viewer to image what they look like all together. The technique is usually used on women artists because it shows off their body.
