Online lesbian pornography in the form of an image, is to 
me, a strange evocation of theatrical desire and shame. The “teen” models, the short skirts, the pale shades of pink and blues – campy details of what being a teen girl supposedly looks like from the outside – are composed in ways that replicate a continuous sexual scenario so that desire no longer shifts with imagination but instead repeats itself over and over again like a broken record. The shame that follows when looking at these images, is devoid of clarity, memory, or explanation and seems to have been highjacked by an industry that serves mostly men. My intention when making these embroideries was to transform the images into a visual experience that would disrupt the farcical realities that are so often defined by a porn industry and invite the viewer to look and feel closely, differently and authentically.
