The Devour series is about how the past and current representations of disabled people in the media actively harm us and contribute to our marginalization and oppression.The figure in each piece is the Succubus, a symbol for the way society consumes disabled peoples narratives and the media that exploits them. In all the pieces she masquerades as disabled, and our blood, represented by the stark red fingertips, is on her hands because of this action. In some pieces she veils herself in our stories in a perverted act of piousness. In others, she wraps herself in the aesthetics of disability, as pretending to be us is lauded in the media, often referred to as "Oscar bait", and she revels in the acclaim she receives. And finally, in others, she zealously consumes us. That through her consumption, she is an active participant in our oppression.
The blue cast of the series is meant to emit an eerie feeling of serenity, symbolizing the mainstream attitudes about representations of the disabled, and how the majority of the abled don't see those representations as problematic and harmful. Standing bold against the pale blue is the crimson red. It is us; the disabled. It's our blood, it's our lives, and it's our stories. Through their juxtaposition, we see the Succubus and her true intentions, as she devours problematic media, and pretends to be us, all while ignoring and silencing the voices and narratives of actual disabled people.
