300 Tampons

I had the opportunity with this project to create something that confronts the taboo surrounding the tampon and to turn it into an opportunity for productive conversation. 300 tampons unwrapped, no applicators, hanging on the wall are there to grab your attention, and the booklets resting on the shelves inform you of the complications stemming from the taboo. Whether this be the harmful side-effects of stigmatizing a natural bodily function, the huge, unchecked amount of waste created by feminine hygiene products, or the chemicals Women insert into their reproductive systems once a month, there are definitely issues to be discussed, and this project focuses on just that.
