An interactive installation shown at the Brooklyn Arts Council Gallery (2014-2015) using beauty and humor to reference unrealistic, and outdated notions of female identity. A tile patterned floor, molding, wainscoting, chair rail, and floral wallpaper patterns are all made from approximately 4000 pieces of hand-cut and laser cut sandpaper. Sandpaper is used to represent the pressure society puts on women to be domestic goddesses. As viewers walk through the gallery, the floor wears down and changes over time representing the wearing down of gender stereotypes.
