Crafted in response to the tampon tax Tampax Pearl imagines the luxurification of a tampon. The work interrogates the classification of period products as taxable luxury items. Hand pierced lacework echoes absorbent fabric and opulence. Inappropriate yet conventionally 'luxurious' materials see functionality comprimised in the pursuit of luxury.
