The article focuses on the use of materials ranging from food to fabric for fashion bizarre. The author was also thinking about fashion and trying to choose a site on the body that is not usually associated with clothing to comment on the ways in which the body is acted on, contorted and molded by culture and how culture compels people to participate in practices that objectively may seem completely bizarre. The idea of drawing in the viewer and also pushing him/her away is central to the pieces. The element of touch has always played an important role in author's work.
