Machinations. This series is about the expoloitation and visual vocabulary of women's expressions and identities in popular media. While a "wholesome" girl selling corn flakes and the porn star may appear to be polar opposites, they are in fact, different shades of the same color in the way that women's expressions are carefully constructed, constricted and dehumanized in favor of objectification and caricaturizations meant to transform human beings into commodities as well as tools of the commodity trade. .
