Awareness and understanding of social equality is continuously improving, but is nowhere near where it needs to be.
Awareness and understanding of social equality is continuously improving, but is nowhere near where it needs to be. Ice-Pop satirizes female gender stereotypes, highlighting societal double-standards around women’s physical appearance and presence in the American home and workforce. Ice-Pop is a visual + audio dialogue around important issues of gender, body image and social norms. Ice-Pop was shown in the DELVING IN exhibit at Gallery R (2016), as well as at Imagine RIT (2016).
Collage, Animation, Projection Mapping
Collaboration with Eliza Tehan and Julie Campbell
Advised by Nancy Bernardo
The projection mapping piece focuses on body image, gender roles, and sexualization. The animation and collages utilize the same quirks, humor, undertones. Typing together elements of the past and the present, we created a track of electroswing music performed by female artists. Songs used include: "Why Don't You" by Gramophoneszine, "Rock It For Me" by Caravan Palace, "Swing, Swing, Swing" sung by Keely Smith, and "Mr. Sandman" by the Chordettes.
