Women Dream is a set of 3 nested boxes with collapsible walls connected by the type of net fabric used in wester veils. When lids are removed walls fall out flat, but are difficult to put back up when the boxes are reassembled. Text (some in romanized Arabic) appears on both sides of the walls of the boxes and describes the walls that Judeo, Christian and Islamic traditions impose upon women and their freedom. The text reflects these three viewpoints, but is unidentified forcing the viewer to consider how similar or different they may (or may not) be. When the third box is opened a tiny delicate feather is in the center of this book.
