Through my work “A New World Order,” I question the extent to which the color Millennial Pink changes our perceptions of objects and even influences our unconscious decisions, by imagining what it would look like if on the institutional level pink’s “feminizing” power is put into good use – to reduce perceived violence for a kinder society –in a fictional feminist utopia/dystopia. In this paper, I will be contextualizing my art practice with the complex implications of pink in realms of psychology, pop culture, politics and participation art, and how social construction about the color pink affects gender performance. This paper will be broken down into three concepts that inform my work: Pink Spaces, Camouflage & Violence, Propaganda & Illusion of Democracy, and I will also discuss the participatory element that merges these three concepts into a cohesive experience for the viewers.
