Venus Magazine

Our theme was Ontological design, for this magazine I claimed that the modelling industry has created a negative ontological process. That as society we should break this process. I compared it to the cyclic process of a butterfly which is what the modeling industry should base their system on, a system whereby the person feels more beautiful at the end. As someone who has grown up as a plus size girl, I understand the deterioration of our self-esteem that many teenagers have felt. I wonder if we had more plus size role models, if there would be more confidence in ourselves. The poem is writen by me and all the butterflies are gauche paintings that I painted in.
