FORT (2016)


Installation and Interactive Performance

the fort was conceived from my desire to express and share certain aspects of the feminine condition. from childhood, girls are taught to play with Barbies and idolize Disney Princesses, thus an unhealthy expectation of physical perfection permeates our society. women and girls are encouraged to alter the appearance of their bodies in order to meet these expectations. this installation and interactive performance presents the means of alteration and ultimately the rejection of these expectations.
