Differences in human physique are inner and outer: male, with his capability to act outwardly, and female, with her inward capacity to endure pressure. To equate these bodily roles to roles within a home has become either outdated or embraced.

I directly compare cloth with femininity. Structurally, both hold traits of deep-seated fragility. Single threads, repetitively built up, construct cloth. Our body repeats a single cycle, preparing itself to bear. A womb and a blanket act nest-like while adapting to what they hold. Similarly, bricks and cement become a shell of a building, seemingly strong, on par with man. I exploit such materials by forcing a raw interaction between them, exposing a strength, weakness and resilience in each. I work this way to investigate the homelike qualities of masculine and feminine balance.
