Quotes

"I don't think this can go on forever," said Tom Looser, an associate professorprofessor of East Asian studies at New York University. "The fact there is nostalgia among fans indicates you are already seeing some of the limits, that she is dated."
"She's a really good blank canvas, she doesn't have a mouth, she doesn't really have a personality written for her, like a story. She's made to put on product, so I feel like the artist can speak through her really easily, and project their emotions and their feelings on her" says Rivadeneira, who co-curated the exhibit
