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?

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.
