I’m currently working on my graduate project which is based around ideas of gender roles in the domestic space.

So it was the woman’s hand, and then it becomes the woman’s body in a number of gestures.”
"You know, a few months ago, I made a terrible mistake. I realized something, and instead of crushing the thought the moment it came I… I let it hang on, and now I know it to be true. And I’m afraid it’s stuck in my head forever. These are the best days of our lives. It’s a terrible thing to know, but I know it."
Failure is a process, you have to fail over and over and over again to get anything that’s worthwhile.
