Produce Babes

Installation, 1998. 3 video monitors, produce packaging, VHS tape

Three 14-foot female figures built from panels of supermarket produce packaging stitched together with VHS video tape. Each figure's face is presented as a television monitor looping a video composite of found footage from broadcast television. The video edits remark on extreme social expectations of female beauty, body shaming and dysmorphia, pop-cultural goddess mythos and hypocrisies.
