Perfected Pillow

Andrea Zittel, Perfected Pillow

Perfected Pillow is one of Andrea Zittel’s earlier works in which she experimented with domestic spaces and functional objects. Examining the “art of lifestyle,” Zittel’s interest lies in the consumption of home goods and the concept of home “improvement.” In Perfected Pillow, Zittel takes our idea of the typical head pillow and upgrades it to a full-bodied, rug-like and fringed body pillow.

“The most important thing for me, is the way the work functions on a psychological level, how it explores desires, fantasies, or even fears.”

Things Men Have Made

Today was International Poetry Day and i recited a poem at the Sherkin Island Library by D.H.Lawrence

dhlaw

Things men have made with wakened hands, and put

                 soft life into

are awake through years with transferred touch, and go

                 on glowing

for long years.

And for this reason, some old things are lovely

warm still with the life of forgotten men who made

                 them.
