3D Me

I am the kind of creative that likes to dip her feet into every medium. My first love was photography, but my second and more fervent love is 3D modeling & rendering. I didn’t want to spread myself too thin so I decided to put my photography in the back seat and focus on my...

Clothes Horse

I used to be a total clothes horse. Throughout high school, if a day came when I had nothing new to wear, I’d throw something together, or staple something together, or safety pin it. Upholstery fabric was easy to wrap into a sari. Retro polo shirts became skirts. Anything ­– a boy scout uniform, a nurse’s...

A Nervous Weakness— The Feminist Outlet of Gothic Literature.

“Most men’s eyes, when you look at them critically, are not like that. They may look at you very expressively, but when you look at them, just as features, they are not very nice.” A woman rips down a stripe of hideous wallpaper. Her husband looks on helplessly before falling into a dead faint. His...

Fancy Feast!

A set of 9 photos and 3 GIFs based on the idea of a kitsch queen having a totally colorful, lavish feast. We were inspired by all things tacky, campy, and gross, and think that the images would fit perfectly with Polyester’s aesthetic that we both adore. Iris took the photos, I collaged ’em and...

On Subjectivity & What We Call Bipolar

There is no contesting the very real ways that Moods have molded me. Mania has marked my life with heightened creativity, incredible sensitivity, and boundless energy; the madness that follows has brought broken hearts, financial worries, totaled cars, and disordered eating. It has, oh so often, been the gates to depression which pulls me out...

I’m In A Serious Relationship With My Food

I’m in a Serious Relationship with My Food is a series that highlights the basic necessity and the infinite complexities relating to the human being’s profound connection to food.  With an unsettling air, these photos capture excess, insanity, privilege and options.  I wanted to make the scenes overwhelming, intimate and perverted, forcing the viewer into...

Science Fiction Is For White People

The concept of science fiction was built for white people; it took off near the start of the Industrial Revolution and age of Enlightenment in Europe. Scifi is then a very Eurocentric box, though The Arabian Nights and other folklore may contain elements of scifi. Scifi is an expansion, along with technology, in the human...

Nothing Sweeter

Nothing tastes better than putting down sexist men, as shown in Ona Greenberg’s monthly comic. Exploring the sweeter side of life shouldn’t be accompanied by any bitter remarks. Comic: Ona Greenberg
