easier to talk about art while washing dishes, Wadsworth Atheneum.
a lecture for the Atheneum, I showed videos of past projects in the restaurant's
kitchen while washing the lunch hour's dirty dishes. Those who came were
given a pen that was signed and read: "the objectofyour authorship."
They then videoed me, signed my arms, some helping me to finish the dishes.
One woman came up to me halfway through and gave me a pair of rubber gloves
she had brought: "I was too embarrassed earlier, but I thought that
you might need these."
