|Abstract:||My interactive sculptural installation par for the course potrays the challenges and repercussions of defying the expected gender roles of domestic containment culture. The viewer-player in par for the course expects to hit the ball into the cup of each hole. But, I purposefully made the course extremely challenging, if not impossible, to play. By doing so, I have magnified the artificiality of miniature golf by conflating competition to the point of absurdity. This unrealistic competition mirrors the artificiality and difficulty of prescriptive roles.|
