Apparently I am once again ......  one day behind the NY Times!!!

Filling the Zach Feuer Gallery, artist Phoebe Washburn's installation "Nunderwatr Nort Lab" which explores her interest in "systems based on patterns of production often created by inefficiency." In this case she is examining the unrelated activities of art and lunch!!! In this piece the viewer will observe and smell lunch being made inside the installation, as well as watch it being eaten!!

"The main structure, composed of blocks of scrap wood, that has been repurposed and then ordered from previous installations, contains observational 'worm holes' that extend into the structure from which visitors can glean, in addition to hear and smell, bits of the activities occurring inside."

I find it Washburn's constructions to be a visual feast ....
in addition to being an ecological statement ...
and every time I look at her pieces, 
I see something else ......
I especially love peering into the 'worm holes'!!!
