Q: In the series Drop Dead Gorgeous, what do you think are the links between the objects, gender, and context?

Most of the objects relate to some pressure women face– nutrition, beauty, appearance, all of which may tend to distract women from reaching self actualization in other areas– intellect, purpose, meaningful lives. Advertising simultaneously tells women to dress up, put on makeup and be very, very slim, then over saturates the senses with images of food.
