Building a Biography

These are the drawings that began the furniture work. I was wondering about the feminist contention that the biography was a limited form to document the life of a woman. At the time one could go to library and see that the biography of Susan B. Anthony was markedly slimmer than say Harry Truman. Was this because her life was slimmer? It got me thinking that a piece of furniture is perhaps I more tangible format for illustrating a life. Therefore, I began to design pieces for woman who's biography I had read and tried to form a built manifestation of the woman's life.
