Bound whispers a list of the most powerful women today. Their names and titles become the textural pattern and fabric of a suggested dress of which the figure has left behind. The featureless body challenges the viewer to set a side judgment and to view self differently. The box shape implies containment and symbolizes imposed limitations. By breaking through the borders, the figure successfully begins to tear down those walls built to define our differences and to divide us as human beings.
Although women continue to be bound by gender, caste, creed, and nation, many have weakened or removed ties to obtain leadership positions in industry, academe, and government. The Forbes’ 2017 list 100 Most Powerful Women underscores this advancement. My hope is to inspire a new generation of women to move toward what is fully possible.
