Why Some Dolls Are Bad is a dynamically generated graphic novel. Built on the Facebook platform, the work assembles a stream of images from Flickr that match certain tags and dynamically mixes them with original text in order to produce a perpetually changing narrative.
Users who add the application in Facebook can capture pages from the graphic novel and save, reorder, and distribute them.
The novel engages themes of ethics, fashion, artifice and the self, and presents a re-examination of systems and materials including mohair, contagion, environmental decay, Perspex cabinetry, and false-seeming things in nature such as Venus Flytraps.
