Rightedness is a metaphorical sculpture in the style of "ecologe," a style by which one collects and reconfigures discarded items to give them a new life as art. The principal aim of this sculpture is to make the viewer think simultaneously about detritus, aesthetics, and the tension of women's political reality. Using mostly recycled materials--wood, mining slag, paper-mâché, paint, metal, and cloth--the sculpture expresses how glamour in our culture serves to distract us from women's continuing oppression.
