A series of figurative wooden cabinets that explores the context of my childhood, revealing the white female middleclass mid-western world in which I lived.
Each figure represents a stereotype from my youth – businessman, waitress, housewife and baby, teenager, grandparents, boy, and girl. The series involves a fictitious social studies assignment given in second grade: Mrs. Gardner told us to interview people in our community, take their picture, and then make a booklet.
None of these personas depict particular people, but each captures aspects of many I have known.
This series is available for purchase, as a whole or individually.
