I came across this on the Kearny Street Workshop artists page while hunting down another thread that didn't quite pan out:

Big Bad Chinese Mama is a spoof on Mail Order Bride sites that hits at the core of the West's construction of Asian women, the mail order bride mentality (which she equates with colonialism & capitalism), and (white) patriarchy in general. Smart, theory-based, and funny. It comes complete with a manifesto, more an artist statement really, but who cares?
