For a conditional book assignment, I focused on birth control. The concept of periods was used as a system; only 7 chapters, 7 pages in each chapters, and 7 different birth controls (periods approximately last between 5 - 7 days). Each chapter focused on the side effects of the birth control, but slowly fades out as it gets closer to the end signaling the end of a period, as well as the fact of people ignoring / accepting the consequences of those possible side effects. Lastly, Stanley Kubrick's The Shining is on the flip side -- constantly interrupting the reader, just as menstruation interrupts peoples lives.
