A flirtation within the fine-lines between the public and private, the series of bed-sheets were designed as window treatments. Often when a person begins a new tenancy of a unit, the first task done is the hanging of used bed-sheets over the window to create privacy from on-lookers. It should be noted in addition, that parents often hung a bed-wetter's sheets in public as a last resort to shame them into a corrected behavior. As stated in House & Garden magazine (Oct '88) these would be an embarrassment to the maid.

This pubic-to-public series of artisan bed-sheets featuring wire-like scribbles were a complement to the designer luggage "Traveling Exhibitions" in New York and Köln.
