Benjamin Rinehart: "The viewer is encouraged to question color relationships and how it affects gender association. Society and cultural beliefs often dictate the hues that are 'acceptable' and how it relates to a specific gender. Historically this changes over time, especially with variations of primary colors like blue and red.
