Blanket Stories at the Gates Foundation

I had a recent workshop at the Gates Foundation in downtown Seattle, right by Seattle Center. While moving between venues, I stumbled upon one of Marie Watts' Blanket Stories sculptures.

This particular example consisted of blankets from the employees of the foundation, and included these guest books with comments. I suppose it is kind of an inventory of the samples.

Here is a closeup of the tags that are attached to each blanket, documenting the origin of the item, who it belonged to, and other details.
