My current project, “It’s Alive!”, is informed by my insecurities about my body and how I see that experience intersect with social constructs like western beauty standards and fatphobia. Other inspirations for this series include the overturn of Roe vs Wade and the age old tale of cis men's need to control and police women's bodies. Additionally, the dual hyper sexualization of fat women combined with the societal shunning and invisibility of fat women/bodies in general.
