Pink Projects

The “Pink Projects” are an exploration of the color pink, a culturally loaded color that has been projected onto girls and women. The “Pink Projects” are made up of thousands of inexpensive products that are either produced or packaged in the color pink. These pink plastic objects --Fake nails, tampon applicators, hair clips, makeup, cleaning products, mirrors, baby pacifiers -- seem to be trying to imitate and perfect the body, perfect nature. 

In these installations, the discarded items assume new value and meaning, showing the marketing of femininity and how our culture infantalizes women.
