I dressed up and played the characters of 15 different stereotypes,

each being a parody of the culture this stereotype addresses.

Thanks to my mum and dad for being my main supporters of all my art projects, providing me with everything I need – from wedding gloves to cheese platters and documenting and editing it all on video.

 

Thanks to my sister, Celina, for the loan of her clothes and jewelery, and for her creative touch.

 

Thanks to Graham Wines for his constant source of inspiration, support and perfect acting of 3 of the 15 characters.

Little Boxes

by 

Pete Seeger

Little boxes on the hillside
Little boxes made of ticky tacky
Little boxes
Little boxes
Little boxes all the same
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same

And the people in the houses all go to the university
And they all get put in boxes, little boxes all the same
And there's doctors and there's lawyers
And business executives
And they're all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same
And they all play on the golf course and drink their martini dry
And they all have pretty children and the children go to school
And the children go to summer camp
And then to the university
And they all get put in boxes, and they all come out the same
And the boys go into business and marry and raise a family
And they all get put in boxes, little boxes all the same

There's a green one, and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same
