‘The Green Carnation’ is a series examining the formula for queerness in mainstream media; the typecast storylines and banal character development that fails to include the rich depth of the LGBTQ community.
Green carnations have been used as a symbol of queerness since the 1800s, when it was often pinned to the lapel in order to safely expose oneself to the community. 'The Green Carnation' experiments with the destruction of the carnation: Durex lube, representing hyper-sexualisation, smothers the petals; flames, representing trauma characters carry, scorch the flower; glitter, representing the far edges of typecast representation, engulfs the green carnation.
