This is a DRAFT version of this project. Currently there is only some outdoor bird chirping on the outdoor shots, the rest of the piece is silent.
This is part of an ongoing series of Bed Projects of women's histories and her-stories.
To read more about these bed projects, please see my website: http://tamarstone.com/Bed_Work.html
This specific project was inspired by finding a piece of sheet music titled “Bed Making Song” from the 1916 book, “Easy Steps in Housekeeping or Mary Frances’ Adventures Among the Doll People” part of a prescriptive series of books for children that taught them about housekeeping – which the author,
Jane Eayre Fryer states, “...the three arts which have most to do with three great needs of life –
food, clothing and shelter.”
Other historical and contemporary texts – some instructive, some personal memories, some news worthy, come together to create the layered bed coverings that make up this children’s housework bed.
