It is rare for me to have unfinished projects sitting idle (I have an obsessive-compulsive streak), so to know that this project was first initiated in 2009 and was left unfisnished is a rarity itself. It is based on a children's sticker book which provides kids with heads and feet to be matched with the correct color-it-yourself image (baker, fire fighter, ballerina). What started in my mind as a gender-bias study ended up after finding the sentence "the road is beautiful, where does the bus go?" (in a children's summer vacation copybook) as a project about anticipated growing up when childhood is optional for some.
