Look and Learn, Little Girl, is a collection of 70+ works that references primary school flashcards, mixed with irony, absurdity and sarcasm to illuminate the positive or negative consequences of conforming to stereotypically passive or aggressive means of behavior. Background card and text information was first printed on silk fabric run through an inkjet printer before digitally organized imagery was added by machine. Source imagery includes clothing, toys, utensils, appliances, etc., to represent a female character and are paired with a word determining the passivity or aggression of the individual. (For example: a telephone is “obedient,” and an iron is “domineering.”)
