This 1998 art piece by artist Dara Friedman is titled "Jodie", featuring model Jodie Kidd. For those of you also from the MTV generation - it takes about 3 minutes in for it to get going.

"Friedman documents a model during a fashion shoot, the exaggerated, staccato rhythms of her camera punctuated by machine-gun like bursts of fireworks and the chiming of bells. The model veers wildly between states of calm and hair-wringing distress in a short, hyper-kinetic sequence bookended by image fields of solid color; a slow approach to an intense, intimate proximity"
