In response to the theme of what is considered inappropriate in a time of homogenized conservatism, I decided to create a work addressing gender coding. Primarily targeted at increasing profit through higher consumption, consumer culture promotes the sale of children’s toys, clothes and party ware in pink for girls and blue for boys. The marketing of pink for girls and blue for boys is just one example of rigid gender stereotyping, so inappropriate for the new non-binary generation.
