whatsthebigmistry - Tropical Awkward Bast*rd

When did hospitality turn to hostility?

A Pineapple, a Bunch of Bananas, a Tropical Juice, Carton, One Sharp Cleaver and a Tutu.

This project originates as a Bold Provocative Rant about being misrepresented in the world, while ticking all the right boxes. Mistry asks what happens when we dissect the spoken and visual languages through which we see the world?

Age Guidance: 16+ Contains adult themes.

As an Earth child she was encouraged to live in a world of dreams where you could dare to fly, talk with angels, wish on a star and be rescued from monsters. But as time has moved on she is condensed down into a box that has no time or space for wonderment, where she must no longer fly and the monsters are closing in...
