IntroductionChapter Images

Nausicaa is defined by consumerism, both Gerty's female saccharine view of products and Bloom's voyeuristic view of her. Accordingly, I will use historic ads as the visual foundation for this chapter. In order to imbue these sources with a feminine touch, they will be printed onto fabric and stitched. The embroidered stitch may represent the floral touches in Gerty's language or the geometric lines of the male gaze.
