Lipstick



I recently finished my dissertation which I wrote primarily about lipstick, the messages it sends about the wearer, and the wider implications the use of cosmetics has on ideas about femininity and gender roles.

I didn't write about Rabbits but I could have.

Above is a mechanical sculpture by Banksy which I saw in Bristol Art Museum over the Summer. Banksy often takes something seemingly trivial and underlines the dark and cynical side to it. Has societies pre-occupation with beauty reached an epidemic?

Stefan Sagmeister's work below sends a really interesting message:


Trying To Look Good Limits My Life

Becoming too concerned about what others think of you is not a root to happiness, is it?
