Artist Statement

The Carrying Stones Project is an ongoing series of sculpture, data visualization, and
social practice works that explores women’s work inequity in its many forms.

Cooking, cleaning, childcare and eldercare responsibilities often still default to women, keeping them from
advancing at work and in society. Even community volunteerism—care-taking of the larger
community—falls disproportionately on women. This project documents the physical, emotional, and
practical effects of these imbalanced burdens.

The inequalities that working women face are both systemic and pervasive, and those biases affect
individual women differently. As such, the concepts for the Carrying Stones works are viewed through an
intersectional lens, and are distilled from the personal narratives of women of diverse ages, ethnicities,
orientations, working roles, and socio-economic statuses.
