The Blue Project – Ethan and His Blue Things, 2006

The Blue project is done by artist JeongMee Yoon, his work is a photograph that depicts a young boy with all his possessions. The artist took them and arranged them for the photo. The artist wanted to show that a majority of his toys contain the color blue and that this is because from a young age society tells boys to associate with the color blue. Yoon also does this same photograph but with a girl and her pink things. I think that his work is very powerful and really shows how society tries to mold you from a young age.
