The Carrying Stones Project is an ongoing series of sculpture, data visualization, and social practice works that explores the inequities surrounding women’s paid and unpaid labor.

Cooking, cleaning, childcare and eldercare responsibilities often still default to women, keeping them from advancing at work and in society. Even community volunteerism—care-taking of the larger community—falls disproportionately on women. This project documents the physical, emotional, and practical effects of these imbalanced burdens.

The inequalities that working women face are both systemic and pervasive, and those biases affect individual women differently. As such, the concepts for the Carrying Stones works are distilled from the personal narratives of women of diverse ages, ethnicities, working roles, and socio-economic statuses.
