Conveyor
2010
Performers, conveyor belt, balloons, lights, and 7 x 19 ft. screen

This performance critiques the self-deprecating actions of women who are trying to find favor with men. Two slender women operate a conveyor belt behind a large screen. The machine systematically pops flesh-colored balloons, visually suggestive of breasts. The women are not only destroying balloons but also metaphorically destroying a part of themselves.
