Ain't no Picnic
, 2005

The surface of a foldable picnic table is completely covered with differently coloured thermoses. Their variations in shape and design are forced to work together within the limited space. The new construction transforms the original use of both the table and the thermoses and combines them into a new symbiotic relationship.
