Period pieces #2:
I made a period room, a minature installation of visual metaphors. It was inspired by my friends’ pet names for their periods, like Hamster Hammock (the hammock was the pad, with a happy wee hamster lounging on it). The room was also inspired by commericals like the one for Lilla of a beautiful woman sitting in a deck chair. What’s the connection between a deck chair an a period? Of course! The seat is a giant pad! What’s that (tampon) blind pulley? What’s that modern (tampon applicator) scultpure? And, ahhh, a little red shiny box. A gift.
