“Really what started it was I met this person on a plane. She was sitting next to me and she works for an advertising agency in New York and I was asking her about the ads and how real or how fake are they. She’s like, oh, it’s kinda like grabbing a leg from one person, an arm from another, and then making a person that way. I thought that was such a funny explanation. Then I started taking imagery from magazines and collaging them with that same idea and it becomes a very UN- idealized person.”
