"In Marilyn's Wedding, which I've based on Andy Warhol's Gold Marilyn, I'm an object of the simulacrum. I'm turned into a fantasy, attracting fascination and desire through the works, while eliciting emotional responses from viewers who see the work. Marilyn's Wedding deals with imposed fantasies of an adult world on a child...I become both subject and object of my own objectification, turned simultaneously into a mutable signifier, rendered into a spectacle of myself."
