Meal (2008)

Words instigate image. Image verbalizes into words. Meal explores the semantic possibilities of common words within new environments. A word study responding to female objectification and the potential of empowerment within the context of sexual appetite.

Artist Statement

I felt it appropriate to include this piece in Facing Expectations as I consider my own voice as a female designer. I question whether our contemporary society has truly evolved or whether we are merely relabeling its perpetual shortcomings. Meal is a selected piece from a larger series that considers sexual hunger as a motivating force within the mass marketing of products and commerce.
