Identisploitation was my graduate thesis project at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. The thesis explores charged representations of identity in pop culture through painted paper figures, video art, and garments. This installation was exhibited in the MFA exhibition, biometaphysicalmateria, and included elements from my works Josephine, Mary, Anita, Skipper, and Garments.
