SHAG T-shirt Contest

20131018-224506.jpg

In grad school I joined a student group called the Sexual and Reproductive Health Action Group, or SHAG for short (you can just ignore the fact that it should really be SRHAG) (Also did I mention that I went to Public Health school and that my concentration was in adolescent reproductive health? Now maybe it makes more sense). Anyway, they wanted to make a group t-shirt and called for submissions. I decided to redo one of the Brooklyn Girls with what I thought were related images, so you have:

Georgia O’Keeffe for the hair (vaginas)

Map of the world for the skin (global nature of this work)

Adam and Eve for the underwear (sex, humans)

BodyWorlds for the stockings (health, science)

And a green landscape for the boots (roots, nature, harmony)

Then I scanned the whole image and used photoshop to put it on top of a bunch of sexual and reproductive health facts.

Needless to say I won – I have the t-shirt to prove it. I wear it to the gym sometimes.

Religious Propaganda Girl

For years I liked collecting what I call religious propaganda, which basically refers to anything faith-based that someone is handing out on the street, and other things like glow-in-the-dark Mary candles and Bibleopoly (actually kind of a fun game). I decided to use the handouts to recreate the Brooklyn Girls Baywatch Babe. Not sure it worked that well because the whole point is the contrast between the papers, and it’s also such small pieces that you can’t really tell what’s written on it, but it was a fun project nonetheless.
