'Moxie traverses the office landscape of our collective psyche, restlessly moving between the interior monologue of daily ruminations and epic-like career narratives lying in wait. The hustle gives way to survival, cresting back into gritty victories via the feminist acquisition of corporate language. Open-plan everything, filing cabinets bursting; the promise of the ladder, beckoning you in.'
