Underfull, Kristine Bjaadal

Kristine Bjaadal has designed a tablecoth which is supposed to absorb spills and turn them into a personal artwork memory blanket. The basic idea is that negative situations can be turned into positives

Not sure what everyone else thinks but I have a few concerns:

1. This is all very well for wine and other fun coloured liquids but what about sticky or lumpy things like hoi sin sauce or lasagne? Surely you would then have to clean the tablecloth and you’d be back to square one?

2. I’m not sure that an artwork composed of times I have accidentally tipped things over would be the positive keepsake implied.

3. How would it not smell of decomposing food and drink after a time?
