Motherwork Mound

    Bryn Mawr College

    Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania

A land sculpture concept that elevates schist stone emerging from below ground to acknowledge the hidden sub-surface passageways used to conceal Black maids, servants, and porters who served Bryn Mawr students without being seen. In recognition of these invisible undervalued laborers, the title references the theory of sociologist Patricia Hill Collins.

Motherwork Mound combines natural, timeless, durable, local materials: schist stone, limestone, soil, grass, interior architectural supports, and interior lighting.
