G.D.P.?

Mixed media

Reflecting the essential part women have played in determining the nature, shape and structure of contemporary female role and identity, this work functions as a review of cultural values: What is the real value of Gross Domestic Product? When you tease apart the words, domestic chores, silent endeavors? By using reclaimed household floor covering, held together with a painstaking stitch, I am seeking to look closely at things we take for granted and have forgotten to see, of daily ongoing rituals that give meaning but in themselves become meaningless.
