Where does one does one decide to place the line between visibility and safety? Can a body be exposed for the sake of visibility without risking exploitation? The neon colors and reflective surface of the wearable object provide a sense of levity, while the formal shapes resembling armor and protection allude to the need for defense and self preservation. The shoulder pads are extended and protruding in ways similar to a medieval pauldron, but have been replaced with inflatable toucan heads. The mohawk style of the helmet also echoes ideas of armor and battle, but once again is materialized through colorful vinyl and plastic leis. These dichotomies and contrasts created through materials and shapes are meant to echo the dichotomies of visibility and safety. Richardson highlights the complexities of the queer experience, providing a sense of empowerment and a need to be seen but coupled with the knowledge of a constant battle and the inherent politicality and aggression of the queer body on heteronormative culture.
