Drawing upon the connotations of a varsity letterman jacket and the Venus of Willendorf, this collection awards the wearer with membership in Team Venus and cultivates a new language of womanhood using feminist cultural icons.
Originally inspired by the intricacies of the female anatomy, this collection has evolved to become a comment on female bodily empowerment, a reclaiming of power via emasculated phalluses and glorified vaginas, and a critique of the backlash directed towards so-called "radical" feminists.

72 Hours of Wakefulness
2013; bristol board, Sharpie marker
In a project where the only prompt was "spatial and temporal", I chose to explore the shape of my own internal clock. However logical, the way I went about this was to disturb it by attempting to reach the legal state of sleep-deprivation-induced insanity: 72 hours of wakefulness. Although I only reached 63 hours, I expressed my internal clock through ink at six different stages of my adventure.
