Washer, Burner, Blender and other pieces (no images) play on a similar theme for women. These pieces satirize the instantaneous associations to women’s roles so effectively communicated by history and media. The “good woman” nourishes her family and maintains the home in germ-free condition. Even the containers of household products are molded insidiously to echo the female figure. The ants in these objects – incidentally, female ants – are busy working, as are the women who employ these appliances and products.
