Last week Jake and I hosted artist Penelope Stewart while she installed work for Absence, Excess, Loss {which is a fantastic exhibition and I hope to post photos from it soon}. This piece is similar to the one she just installed. It consists of 2,000 wax door knobs. Seeing this piece in person is very striking and the smell of beeswax really adds to the experience for me. After talking to Penelope during the week I know that she'll soon be working on making 2,000 more door knobs.

The image below is from the House Project, a 1994 response to Woman House. Penelope responded to the kitchen and covered it entirely with sewn organza pieces.
