This project invites people to commit onto a duster their own views and experiences on the relationship between women and domesticity. Participation is invited not just from artists but from anyone who had an opinion. So far contributions have ranged from poetic quotes, to resentful statements, to images, to fond memories.Artist, designer and lecturer Vanessa Marr selected traditional dusters as a metaphor for domesticity because they are mundane (like most domestic tasks), yet visually appealing in their brilliant bright yellow. When exhibited the dusters are strung together like flags proclaiming a multitude of opinions, stitched with red thread to represent femininity.
