This performance piece is a wry commentary on 21st century sexual politics, with a focus on birth control and beauty. My outfit includes a beauty pageant dress, along with a rhinestone tiara covered in birth control pills. The embroidered sash that reads "Miss Conception", is made by the same company that provides sashes to the "Miss America" pageant.

This project was recently covered with a story by the Huffington Post.
