Untitled Box 1

Shaken and compelled to action by recent physical abuses against women in New Delphi India, I address by this work these injustices against women.  Using form to contain and to enclose the body,
I created a clear distinction to be made between the removal of the participant and
active viewers.  For the participant, feelings of confinement, discomfort, violation and voyeurism
contributed by the viewers, place the participant in a vulnerable and submissive position.
The hand plays the strongest role as the leading force in the violation.  While typically
seen as beautiful and as generally benign, these hands aggressively protrude and transgress
the participants personal space and comfort.  Drawing attention to the challenges with empathetic  perceptions towards these issues.
