|condom bra poem: (inside bra)
lingerie is meant to seduce--
lingerie is usually worn by women, condoms are usually worn by men
yet the ramifications
birth control, sexually transmitted diseases seem to be
address undress redress
(poem inside celphone underpants)
is that your cel, phone or mine?
I am as free as I want to be
interpretations, that is your privilege.
I'm just exercising my privilege as a US Citizen
It's called The First Amendment
I am a Mae West from the 21st century
Is that a gun in your pocket
or is it pointed at my head?
not going protean for you baby,
going protean is art
going protean for me
I know I have it better than my sisters, globally speaking
we sisters still don't have the most basic human rights, globally
If I go protean, it's for me!
I want freedom of expression to resonate globally,
do you get that?
do you get that on a cellular level?
* These 2 art works are separate pieces that I placed together because they
address painful issues re: women but like "women's roles" in many cultures
they appear ornamental and celebratory when "underneath" them -- in this case
inside them lay "painful truths" that globally we don't want to look at...
They are also obvious references to consumerism, advertising,
objectification/object/product dehumanization, etc.
