ballad of the flexible bullet

"And above all else, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it." Roald Dahl

Penelope by Tatiana Blass | Design Milk
Penelope is a recent installation from Tatiana Blass – the name for the exhibit is taken from Homer’s Odyssey. Penelope was Odysseus’ wife and she remained faithful for twenty years while he was away at war. To keep her suitors at bay, she kept herself busy for three years weaving a burial shroud for her father-in-law while secretly unweaving parts of it at night. She promised she would choose one when she was done but delayed it to remain faithful.
