The Total Sum is You:


Suppressed by the historical perception of a woman’s role in the home, I explore questionable positions, literally, of the female in relation to her identity and societies expectations. Exposing vintage self help books for shaping a wife’s personality and how to obtain the perfect body, I isolate these awkward figures into a digital composition to confront the traditional norms of domestic duty. Embroidered elements and appliqué encroach on the melancholy scenes to imply a psychological complexity and emerging hysteria as a result.
