Experiment 5: External influence

This video explores the external influences that have control over a woman and her body.

 

Experiment 4/ Work2 : Exposed

The deconstructed doll inside the clear box is to demonstrate the way women are exposed to influence, yet are put into such a small box which they cannot grow outside the ideologies of their roles/desires/portrayal set by society. When searching desire and clicking on images, majority of those are of women being sexualised and treated as just a body and not a person. It is acceptable by society for the media, men, school or the government sexualise women, but it is wrong with a woman willingly sexualises herself, its classed as wrong and disgusting. The small clear box with the deconstructed body is to demonstrate this, and how a woman is not to step out of the boundary society has set for her. She is not allowed to show the sense of desire that the media portrays her to have.

Experiment 3/ Work 1: Roots

I find that the Barbie is where a girls sense of desire derives from. We admire this beautiful doll with long shiny hair, perfect teeth, body, makeup, clothes, mansion, car and a hot boy on her arm. Without intention, a parent is giving their child a framework of the desirable life, and I believe it is from here where females are targeted. The experiment of the tree of dolls was to explore this, and the way these desires and ambitions are planted into our minds and throughout our lives, they grow and develop.

Experiment 2:

After deconstructing a Barbie, I chose to glue her back together to compare the two sizes.

 

Experiment 1: Trimming Barbie

When extending my research into desire and in particular the impact of external influence has on women’s desires, I explored the way, from a young age, Barbie’s gave false hope and desire for girls growing up. They were taught to desire a body that was unattainable and un-realistic. In this experiment i deconstructed a barbie and cut out the extra length of limbs to form a more realistic sized doll.
