Ginger Classification System

As part of my imagined narrative of a ‘ginger utopia’, I decided that it was human nature to ‘other’ and create hierarchy and difference. So, even in a single-raced world, there would always be the need for humanity to say ‘I am more ginger than you’ – to create sub-classifications. In my exhibition, the 500 […]
