The women that I worked with were really hyper-feminine,” she says. “The interesting thing is, when I show it, a lot of people think it will be a homogenous group. But actually, the only thing the subjects had in common was their hyper-femininity.”

“Why do we call a person authentic? Why do we call an object authentic, and how do the two relate to each other? Societies act as if its a way of maintaining an idea of something that’s good, that’s true – but very often it’s just to maintain a power balance.” 
“The communist cry for ‘necessity’ and the feminist cry for ‘naturalness’ contrast with the human desire for experimentation and self-expression. Since we’re products of our influences, what is it that makes us and the objects we are related to authentic?”
