Factory depicts a setting in which hair, nails, and teeth are added to the body, rather than removed. The figures are building their defenses and claiming empowerment through their increased physicality.
The sculptural treatment of materials and textures in the photographs make reference to older spaces that have a history of repeated, heavy usage. The bodies are continually building. Narratives are digitally stitched together as one gesture connects across time to another.
The photographs humorously address the absurdity and desperation of the actions of these female figures. Much like a shaved animal would be vulnerable in the wild, I attempt to consider how the body itself can be increased as a means of protection for women within a patriarchal society.
