BKPC - Barbie & Ken Politically Correct (1993 - )

BKPC is a series of photo vignettes. The photos were originally offered on the thing bbs for download in 1993. When the internet became popular in 1994 the piece was reworked as a primitive HTML client pull animation. The piece also has been exhibited in physical form as a photo series. The work created a minor uproar when Mattel inc. sent a letter to the thing accusing it of copyright dilution and demanding that the work be removed immediately.

The work focuses on interracial sex and white supremacy. It presents the point of view of a little girl playing with dolls and fantasizing about sex.
