Abstract

Chain of Events, a 3D printed shoulder adornment, evolved out of a desire to portray the many roles a woman enacts throughout her life. This piece is both a literal and metaphorical depiction of how the roles one attempts can be donned by choice, necessity, or force. Over time chains have been used to control women as in the cases of slavery and chastity. Though the rights of women in the 21st century have catapulted forward, there is a resurgence of conservative groups attempting to reassert control over women's rights. The significance of this work is in its use of an emerging technology to create wearable feminist centric art. The ability to use modern design processes to chip away at archaic notions gives the artist power to tell a story in three dimensions. Chain of Events is an artistic response to those who would shackle women by limiting their choices.
