On a daily basis women are flooded with expectations of how they should be. Be skinny. Be defined. Be laid back. Be polite. Be provocative. Be coy. Be educated enough. Because women are subjected to so many opinions, it is impossible to even have your own opinion, let alone advocate for it. We are constantly criticized for taking up too much space, being too demanding, or unreasonable, or angry and emotional. 


Through the medium of clothing, FLOTATION is a physical interpretation of the space women are not allowed to take up.
