This large-scale installation was located in an abandoned home in the decommissioned Rumsey Street Neighborhood. For ArtPrize 2016, Volwiler-Stanley took part in an exhibition hosted by SiTE:LAB, an installation-based arts organization in Grand Rapids. "The Gingerbread Girl" was an architectural intervention in which Volwiler-Stanley removed the plaster from the walls of four rooms in the home, exposing the lath beneath. The lath became like "lines in a journal," laying bare private writings by the artist. The personal writings are juxtaposed with passages from the harrowing novella "The Gingerbread Girl" by Stephen King, a story of a woman who evades the grip of a serial killer. The repetition of the lines of the lath - in both physical form as well as light and shadows - creates an air of confinement.
