Domestic Accident

On a thin-legged table are piled staggering amounts of cups, saucers, and plates. Everything has been made from white linen paper, rendering the installation dreamlike and transparent.

This mammoth washing up serves to remind us that everything goes in circles. Housework is a Sisyphean task that perpetually bites its own tail. Something is always getting used and needing washed. But in the routine and the repetition there can also be healing.
