Hive is a clothing collection and series of paper- based sculptures that explores the internal struggle of the obligated worker as disenchanted proletariat.
Throughout this series, I employ a motif of the honeycomb cell, in repetition, to represent a divisive barrier as social infrastructure created by its workers, and designed for inequity. In the struggle to transgress socialized and internalized barriers in employment, as it relates to poverty, race and gender, I seek to re-imagine an exit from the duality of social oppression towards empowerment, healing and emancipation.
