The focus of Crystal Clean, is to explore the idea that seemingly absolute perfection is a prison and entrapment we unknowingly encase ourselves in. 

This crystal shell she lives in is striking and audacious, not easy to miss. It acts as a label slapped across her body to be stared at, however, in positive contrast, the glistening casing over her skin draws attention to the beauty of the shape of the female form that shouldn’t be hidden, and should be celebrated.

The Crystal Clean series takes inspiration from 1960s instructional videos and commercials of how to be a well groomed woman. The television aims to capture a seemingly mundane moment of the womans isolated life as she watches these videos which are just white noise.
Time to Glow focuses on a habitual beauty ritual, undertaken by many - suntanning. The image shows use of a reflective sunbonnet melting the womans face and setting her on fire, whilst she remains oblivious to the negative and harmful impact of her pursuit down the road to physical perfection.
