The title of my artwork is $12,594.40, which is the average amount women get paid less than men in Australia. The coins placed on and around the table total $12,594.40. My artwork explores the issue of the gender pay gap. Amongst the coins are objects that signify the factors that contribute to the gender pay gap, including kitchen utensils and cleaning supplies. These reference the unconscious and conscious biases that contribute to the differences in pay including outdated expectations that women should be responsible for household duties.
