Harriete Estel Berman has made a career out of recycling metal food containers, dollhouses, and other household goods. The artist has created different series of works that ask what women in America can expect from a culture that demands sexiness as well as hard work. The fact that she works with a sheet-metal brake and other powerful tools that are traditionally used by men only emphasizes Bermans satirical view of "woman's work" in America.
