I dreamt of this project during my undergrad years. The idea was to create a poster series that addresses an issue and visually spreads the message.
This poster series addresses women's daily struggle, being judged just by how they look. This issue affects women at work, going to the gym, or just walking down the street. I was learning/dealing with it as a woman in her early 20s and received male attention that I had never dealt with before.
I chose to convey this message by displaying the issue of women's exploitation in the media. Each poster has its particular meaning within them. I chose three eras during the 21st century and some of the most popular female celebrities during that time. The periods include the early 2000s featuring Megan Fox, Christina Aguilera, Rhianna, and Britney Spears. The mid-2000s era used Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, and Demi Lovato, the 3 hit stars during this time. They represent "growth" from their Disney reputation and what they went through growing up as child stars and becoming adults, finding their way. Lastly, I chose the latest stars of today: Zendaya, Olivia Rodrigo, Ariana Grande, and Billie Eilish. These women are experiencing being a star during intense social media and Tik Tok. All these women I chose to feature have made notable achievements through their talents and not because of their looks.
