Women Beyond Borders, with support from Tajima Creative, presented dynamic exhibitions, highlighting the personal stories of prominent national and regional women in Seattle and Palo Alto. To express these stories in art, the project paired women like California Senator Barbara Boxer, restaurateur and author Alice Waters, Barclays CEO (and former Washington Mutual President) Deanna Oppenheimer and others with established artists working in a range of media. The resulting pieces are both intensely personal and richly intriguing. One of the criteria for selecting the women participating in the exhibition was that their personal stories be inspiring to young girls. In Seattle, adjunct workshops were conducted for GirlsFirst, a leadership program for high school girls of color facing social and economic barriers, and Angeline’s center for homeless women.

The Encrypted Future

Right angles are only made by human beings. And if one thinks of the ultimate object created, one is led to the computer and its binary innards. The dots on the unpainted, rectangular box are like the zeroes and ones used to create software. The disks represent programs which have strategies for solving problems of all dimensions, from local to global levels. The box is about hope in the computer, that it will be able to help humanity.

Lettuce Revolution


We need a revolution, a delicious revolution, that will induce children – in a pleasurable way to think critically about what they eat.

– Alice Waters


Within the Edible Schoolyard project, Alice is teaching us all by demonstration, that we are what we eat. She creates a sense of community and interconnectedness. These are values that I hold high and attempt to eschew and embody in my work in a more formal way as compositions made up of disparate parts joined together to form whole. This “Lettuce Revolution” box piece for the WBB project attempts to visually embody the ideas of Alice Waters.
