How does your eye move around the image? Where did you first focus, where does your gaze end up?

My eyes moved from the top down, eventually focusing on the bottom two images. It was a little more difficult to discern the purpose of the last two images, and thus, I spent more time on them.

The toxic women. I believe this image conveys how women's bodies are fashioned as a canvas board for companies to market toxic items to as a form of beauty and health.

How is this image “ethnographic”? Would you add anything to this image’s “design statement”?

This image combines a variety of material artifacts geared towards women to show us the ways in which women are exposed to toxicity. In doing so, it also uncovers the hegemonic discourses that hide toxicity in the products women use on a daily basis.

How would you describe the image’s subject?

These images are very much geared towards women and the exposures they are pressured into on a daily basis. Whether through arts and crafts, coooking, or make-up, women's bodies are a vessel for toxic chemicals.

What does the image convey about “toxic subjects” (their character, dynamics, etc.)? (How) Does this image open up the concept of “toxicity”?

These images brings to light the societal pressures women have to apply make-up, and thus, creating a "toxic face". The bottom image is indicative of the toxins that people put into their bodies everyday through what they eat. These images show how miniscule exposures to toxins contribute to "total body burden" of toxins.
