Life In Plastic!

Inspired by the artist Will Cotton and his candy filled fantasies, we wanted to take a pastel colored imaginary world and reinterpret it in plastic.  Our goal was to create a whole plasticised world that hearkens back to a Barbie dream house. When we were shooting, we tried to take all the ridiculous feminised and over sexualised tropes about what Barbie would be doing in her dream house – cleaning, baking, bathing – and push them as far as they could go to show just how fake that world would be.
