Family: a book

This book is housed in a wooden box with a front door which opens to reveal a collection of household utensils used as portraits of individual family members. On alternating pages these objects are layered over definitions of the roles to which the family members are predestined. The book investigates the idea of the family unit as a tool of socialization; creating and perpetuating gender stereotypes. The images explore our place and role within our families and beyond.
