The print on the right suggests the classic beginning "It was a dark and stormy night..... Together with an air conditioning unit that sounds like crickets and Yael's lampshade painting, we created a cosy reading area.

Our idea was to create an intimate area within the larger gallery which would provide a cultural context for our work and a place to relax. The books were heroically brought with us on the plane and supplemented by Peggy MacKinnon. Seen here, Phil Anisman, looks over the selection.
