The changes to the traditional physical form of the frame and canvas are representative of the conceptual premise of this series; the role of the woman as subject. By positioning the subject beyond the frame, a spectator of a space she usually inhabits, this series examines the subject’s independence. Visual depictions of women’s bodies within contemporary culture repackage the dissected forms for collective consumption. The women and audience alike have no say in when, where, and how each body is viewed as it is redistributed back to them. "Weight Of The World" considers the literal and symbolic burden shouldered by women, as the natural shapes and contours of their bodies battle with the unrealistic, homogenous collective standards created by this barrage of edited images.
