The Jock Strap piece is another work in progress. For this project I sat nude in a men’s locker room and knit myself a jock strap, commenting on the notion of woman’s work vs man’s work and appropriate activities within gender bondaries. What activities are appropriate in any given space? What activities are appropriate within a gendered space?

I plan to reinact this piece in a locker room that gets more foottraffic, videotape it (hopefully capturing people’s reactions), and make sure I get some footage/images of myself wearing the jockstrap this time. Stay tuned.
