"-... most black people refer to the area of hair on the back of the neck as the "kitchen." If a woman has straight hair there she has a clean kitchen, if the hair course or nappy she has a "dirty" kitchen. This work is just a look at the wide range of "kitchens." it was an attempt to remove all the other politics of the female body to focus strictly on the hair, and it's affects on femininity, sexuality, beauty and race."

Is this an an ad campaign in the making or what!?
