Archival Inkjet print on paper.



"The Yellow Wallpaper is an ongoing multimedia work stemming from a feminist critique of the mental health system, and referencing the work of author Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Created in Google SketchUp and exported as two-dimensional images as well as short video walk-throughs, the work is a comment on the paternalistic nature of our current mental health system, and is a part of an ongoing exploration of the effect of the treatment environment on recovery from mental and physical illness."
