Okay, so my friend Julie encouraged me to make some art for a show on feminism.  I had made a few collages and things, but never really thought of them as art.  But when I began to think about what it means for me to be a female, I got inspired, and this is what I came up with.  The term "cultural detritus" kept running through my mind- as I was making it I realized that I was sort of incorporating a lot of things that only I as an American, 20ish year old female would have in my collection of things.  Sorry for the terrible webcam quality.  I just need to buy photoshop so I can modify my digital pics so craftster will take them.

And some details:

I'm thinking about adding on a front door type thing with a faceless naked woman.  Sort of an outside the body/inside the mind sort of thing.  Responses?

Sooooo awesome.

I'm so happy that I have a friend who is also an artist! Now I can ask you all of my pertinent questions about the art scene! Question number 1: Where is the art scene?

Just kidding... Keep up the good work. I'd love to see more!
