This project is a collaboration with the artist’s son. Every hour of her son’s life is depicted in a series of hieroglyph-type markings which evolve with the project. To highlight the unseen and uncompensated nature of women’s work, each drawing is available for sale at the cost of minimum of wage in Oakland $12.10. If someone else watches the child, the market rate in the Bay Area is about $15-$20 an hour.
Every two weeks the artist faxes and tweets her timesheets to “the patriarchy” via the local, state and federal government channels to bring awareness to and visibility to the free women’s work she is doing.
Support the artist by purchasing a time sheet for the cost of minimum wage here.
