A walk through installation experience that is a meditation on the status of women. Seductive aspects of a built fantasy world slowly give way to reveal the perils for a woman living her life as a doll. By exploring personal spaces and narrative elements of this character’s life, viewers entering the installation will encounter a dialogue about power structures, childhood expectations and gender distinctions that take root early on and continue to shape us as adults.
