The Apron Archives

Here are the Apron Archives, a hallway gallery featuring a series of extensively hand-embroidered aprons, each focusing on a different science topic—from gravity, to string theory to the psychological theories of Wilhelm Fleiss. The aprons will each be featured in separate postings. The "Gravity Makes No Sense Apron" is in the posting prior to this one. The gallery is in a hallway lit only by Christmas tree lights with hand-crafted copper shades so photography is iffy at best, but you'll get the idea.

A mannequin hangs overhead in the gallery, wearing an apron that serves as the gallery sign.

The mannequin's apron reads "The Apron Archives - Speculative Science Fancy"

There are currently six aprons in the gallery. The wires from which the aprons hang are secured at either end by antique drawer pulls.
