In the series, Chan-Hyo Bae has chosen the iconography of queenliness to express his feelings as an Asian immigrant. His self-portraits mimic women monarchs only and are an examination of gender, power, race, and class. 

"We call western people’s fixed notion or a distorted view toward the East ‘Orientalism,’ which originated from the cultural prejudice in the West, and ‘Occidentalism is a comparative notion which makes a contrast with Orientalism. Edward Said formerly criticized that both are nothing but false images that see other cultures from an ethnocentric viewpoint and this tendency has justified the western imperialists’ invasion against the East."

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
