Yoon calls on the bedrooms of children and organizes their belongings to compose these photographs. She initiated the project when her daughter began limiting the color palette of her possessions. She discovered that her child was not alone in her quest for ultimate pink. Blue for boys and pink for girls has become a cross cultural average for desire amongst children. It is a product of commercial training that begins with the first diaper change.
