- Beyond Mama
BFA Show at Southeast Missouri State Univeristy
- Beyond Mama is a space for viewers to experience the lives of women who had the ingredients to go beyond those who came before and also view how they made a unique mark on the world. I chose to use cupcakes to represent the women based on how the relationship between women and cooking has changed throughout the years and because of how cupcakes have grown in popular culture. Cupcakes are a perfect example of how one small idea can grow and change throughout time to create a uniquely different idea or object.
Designing the different cupcakes created its own challenges due to the small space available for images. It was difficult to create the perfect forms and symbols to clearly illustrate these amazing women. Beyond Mama is a place for one to reflect on those who lit the path for us to follow and hopefully add new light for those to come. Please feel free to explore the space and create your own cupcake to illustrate your special ingredient that will help you go beyond.
