Glossier Boy Brow, 2018
Digital Image and Poem
This work is inspired by prompts provided by a Glossier Instagram Influencer video competition. Integrating a classic-Vinay-aesthetic with commentary on influencer and MUA social media archetype from use of iambic pentameter, highlights my use of contrast and texture with brand continuity. Gender performance and cultural currency trading is under critique as I compare and contrast products in the public, trending realm, with uses that subvert and confuse the very being of Glossier's Boy Brow Product.
