Una Rose

For her thesis work, Rose uses humor to examine the body, feminism, sexuality, and American pop culture. Rose explorers the rules society and culture places on beautification, makeup application, and female body decorations. Rose created a 13-minute movie entitled Beauty Magic which is described as “a surreal social guidance film about hair, makeup, pose, and glamour.” She uses various food related items such as cakes, snack foods, and Jell-O molds in place of the female body. In the film a set of female hands interacts with the cakes and various items while a young woman narrates the step-by-step instructions that are featured.
