Preferably Blue: not everyone loves Christmas

"Preferably Blue is a bittersweet fairytale that your parents would never have read to you before bedtime. Their fear that you may turn out to be a bitter adult, knocking back anti–depressants like they were liquorice allsorts, if you didn't get what you wanted for Christmas, was probably the reason."

(Wayne Ching, 2010, Yukfoo Ltd.)

Fallen Princesses: reimagining the everyday life of iconic characters

"Her two recent projects are 'Fallen Princesses', 2009 and 'In the Dollhouse', 2011. 'Fallen Princesses' is an ironic look at children's parables, from Grimm fairy tales to Walt Disney. By placing iconic characters such as Little Red Riding Hood or Snow White in modern situations, the series became a commentary on such everyday scourges as poverty, obesity, cancer and pollution."
