With the focus on chores done in and around the house, these photographs incorporate embroidered women carrying out specific tasks within the role of a housewife. The choice to use women and their specific attire is to show how domestic work has changed very little while women have changed a lot. A generic term full of connotations and exposed in the media as a superficially glamorous role, housewifery is actually the essence of home. Though the thought that there is something more than this, pulls her away in daydreams and musings until she finds herself carried away.
