Ann Hamilton: Welcome Mat

This product is unavailable

Produced in an edition of 200, this rubber 'welcome mat' designed by Ann Hamilton was inspired by a sentence that the artist was asked to read during an eye exam. The excerpt is from Johanna Spyri’s classic children’s fiction story, Heidi. For the artist, the passage evokes a comforting, youthful nostalgia in a moment when, paradoxically, her ophthalmologist was testing for visual impairment often associated with aging.

What better than a mat inviting us to cross the threshold with a youthful spirit?!

0.5" x 13" x 42"

Made of recycled, composite rubber in Oakland, CA.
