Studies by Kylie Why
Site Specific Performance
My challenge and working experiment on modern beauty expectations. Applying different synthetic substances to my face to imitate the excessive beauty culture of a "dream" woman.
I wanted to see how the different settings would effect the meaning of the action. Different settings I chose to perform include: my family home, a campus dining hall, a library, Stop'n Shop deli section, and my studo space.
Themes from the studies: issues with vanity, disguises, and challenging my peers.
