Photographer's Note

Recently there was an exhibition by Mexican artists in Rockefeller Center. It included all kinds of mixed media: sculpture, digital displays, furniture, and, yes, laundry.

The 193 international flags that usually ring the ice skating rink were replaced by hanging clothes, and clothes lines were also strung across the main walkways.

This is the work of Mexican artist Pia Camil. Its entitled Saca Tus Trapos Al Sol (Air Out Your Dirty Laundry), and it includes more than 700 personal items from Mexico City residents. Each item is meant to represent a bit of personal history.

I was amused by the hanging laundry, and it made me question, once again, what the meaning of art really is. I guess one persons old laundry is another person's masterpiece, showing that just about anything has the possibility of transforming into art. :-)

In the WS are two more views.
