Good Quote: On the Refrigerator as Work of Art

Ms. Puett sees the refrigerator as just as valid a territory for thoughtful arrangement as any other part of the house. "It's a really fun game," she said. "It makes moving through the banalities of life stimulating." - Artist J. Morgan Puett, quoted in the New York Times
Hmm. This quote made us laugh because we couldn't quite figure out what it meant. And yet the idea of arranging our fridge for something more than just convenience suddenly made us thoughtful. Maybe artists just have too much time on their hands - or perhaps there's something in this?
