Through the Window:

My experience

as a woman
living in the Boom

An installation of 150 boxes, each representative of an experience of my life as a woman living in the Bakken Oil Patch.  The booming oil-based economy of North Dakota attracted an influx of workers, predominantly men.  

 

While living on my own, I collected an abundance of stories, articles, trash, and other fragments that challenged my way of life and femininity.
