Hi, Ben... Interesting work...but would one have to be cleaning the dishes in a photo, or is the presence of the dishes -- which implies cooking... which is, in my mind domestic -- enough? Nancy : )

nancy, i agree that a pile of dishes is domestic enough. but for the concept of this particular project, i am looking to pair up two common tasks, tasks which are both domestic and about maintenance, adjacent to one another. That it is dish washing as opposed to making one's bed, is fairly arbitrary. i just think that it could be quite beautiful to see a room full of diptych photographs of two people washing their dishes. if you would like to participate, you can mail your photograph to ada web, attn: ben kinmont, 32 West 22nd. st. 6th floor, New York, N.Y. 10010. till later. ben.
