Southern Fem— is a 3-channel video installation exploring the relationship between feminism and the lived experiences of southern women. Most of the participants are part of my immediate family.

The subtitled answers on the television screen downplay the importance of asking direct, interview-style questions about feminism. This allows the piece to function instead as an asynchronous portrait of what it means to be a woman from the south, a place often stereotyped for encouraging rigid gender roles.
