Works in Progress
The works pictured here are part of an ongoing series of experimental sculptures. Additional images will be added over time.
The built environment is inherently shaped by the labor of its construction. With the execution of this process being generally dominated by over 97% male builders in the United States, the resulting environments become afflicted by the same gender dynamics and stereotypes that are present in society. Seemingly neutral spaces become intrinsically afflicted relics of a male-dominated culture. Examining aspects of embodied space, private place, and social construction, these works responds to this implicit spatial gendering and considers its relationship to larger social and legal structures. Through the repetitive altered use of builder’s materials, the resulting objects reconsider and subvert expectations of built space.
