The essence of power
The essence of power is a glass installation based on the cubical structure employed in many contemporary office spaces. The material reveals the system designed to control and contain at the same time it points to the danger of trying to dismantle it; breaking the glass brings injury at the same time it can offer freedom. The work refers to larger questions around the relationship between feminism and the power structures it seeks to interrogate. It addresses the complex moment of becoming aware of being trapped within a system but not knowing whether to try to shatter it oraccept it.
