My work is centred around beauty, and the extremes that women go to to achieve ‘beauty’. In my videos the person who is speaking is never the person that you expect to be saying the things that they are. I am using defamiliarization in order to make the viewer hear the words a fresh, as many of these things are heard so often that people do not listen to them anymore. By having the wrong people saying things I aim to give the viewer a new perspective on the beauty industry. The contrasting visuals in the videos aim to draw attention to the obsession and strangeness of beauty by comparing it to other obsessive actions.
