Mom Xep Campbell clearly has a sense of humor when it comes to her 10-year-old daughter Kestrel leaving her dirty clothes around the house. In a series of photos that came up on Facebook, she has showed a hilarious “art installation” that pays tribute to a sock that kestrel was left in the bathroom for a week.
“On Thanksgiving night, when I was going to bed, I noticed one of kestrel socks on the bathroom floor. I decided not to toss it in the laundry basket but to see how long it would stay there, sort of a sociological experiment,” wrote them in their caption. “Today, a week later, it stayed, so I decided that it had to be deliberate and deserved recognition as such.”
“I made this little label hoping it would motivate them to pick it up.”
Instead of getting upset about Kestrel – or reminding them to pick that damn thing up 15 times! – Xep leaned on her experiment by making a tiny plaque stating that the piece is “on loan from the artist’s collection”. When the installation was up, Kestrel became aware of it.
“I made this little label in the hope it would motivate them to pick it up. Oh no. She texted me and asked if I did, ”Xep explained. “When I got home she said, ‘I made a pedestal for it!’ She played my shame. I thought as long as it was on display it deserved an audience, so the barn animals arrived. They find it very fascinating. “
