In Duty Bound:

Bound household furniture depicts the trappings of a conventional feminine life, while tangled hair represents the constrained identity to live up to domestic obligations. The laborious process of embroidery displays an absurd portrait of the ideal home, further emphasized by resilient patterns that symbolize disillusions of normalcy. This series is named “In Duty Bound”, after a poem by feminist writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, author of “The Yellow Wallpaper”.
