I am enthralled by everyday objects such as processed pink snack cakes that look like breasts and genitalia, outdated hairdressing and grooming manuals that offer up absurd beauty treatments, and jello molds that represent jiggling orifices. This iconic and easily overlooked refuse and ephemera speaks to a greater, and unsettling cultural aesthetic.
