The cube is a feminist response to minimalist sculpture, and the foundation of quilt patterns.
The names for the quilt patterns contribute important content to the work. In this pedestal the quilt pattern Baby Block was used as a metaphor.
It is so hard to be creative when your taking care of small children. There is no moment in the day unused and the effort required to take care small children and a house is exhausting. Child rearing is unappreciated and underpaid in our modern age.
Materials: Printed steel from vintage doll houses, folded and fabricated using the traditional quilt pattern titled Baby Block.
