In her own words Zittel explains “My goal is to make a work that is simultaneously a highly rendered artisan object, conceptual art, and functional object.” naming checking Mies van der Rohe, who would hang Navajo rugs on the wall next to Rothko paintings. “On one hand we want to fill our lives with beautiful and well designed objects,” she writes. “… And on the other hand we yearn for objects that are charged with the authority of art history and/or ideological content.”
