Mother The Job – In Black and White
In Black and White is photography comparing sixteen jobs mothers perform daily (cook, housekeeper, chauffeur, etc.) that are economically unrewarded and unrespected when performed domestically but are accorded monetary and social value in the marketplace, once again asking the viewer – “Isn’t ‘mother’ a job?” The market value of each job is listed as well. Items used to execute these jobs are found all together inside a large Plexiglas box and represent the unrecognized and unrewarded labor expected of one group of people– mothers. Items include: vacuum cleaner, board games, car keys, broom and mop, pots and pans, toothbrushes, crayons and much, much more.
