Glasser draws inspiration from viewing construction sites, particularly in the neighborhoods of her native New York City. "Query" poses the question, "what will we leave behind and will it be remembered"? Old structures are torn down to build new ones. Glasser uses beeswax and other mediums on rigid paper surfaces to make what she calls "the archeology of the future". Though her sources are structural by nature, they are metaphors for the people who build them, occupy them, and destroy them.
