projects :: how to be a lady
How to Be a Lady is my half of a joint project I worked on with Carolee Wheeler in 2012. Carolee's half is called Sweet Dreams.
At an early age, music videos gave us ideas about how the world worked and how we might come to be adults. Each of these zines is about how certain music videos from the 80s and early 90s shaped this concept in our minds. The zines examine our perception of gender and society through the lens of pop culture. The layout of the zines is intensely cut-and-paste, and the zines are packaged in a handmade gold paper folder hand-decorated with notebook graffiti representative of the era.
