ART 314: Extended Photography
Social Fabric

The works on display re-situate some traditional female artistic and domestic activities. A series of large photographs explore the ties women have historically been bound to by food and clothing. Weaving becomes a predominant theme and method by which these gender duties are examined. One of the works of this exhibition is an organic woven tablecloth depicting a myriad of images that seamlessly integrate over and under one another. The methods that bind these photos have also been bound to women over the centuries. The subtle references to the female gender also push and pull within the relationship of the organic and inorganic lifestyles that have evolved over time. The evolution is not perfect, nor complete, but the cloth is still being woven.
