The image-clad steel door in photographer？Emily Johnston‘；s apartment sharpened our eyes for the magnetic surfaces that already exist in many homes.

The way to find out if something is magnetized is to simply run a magnet over it. We have a range of sizes and holding strengths that we bought from K&；J Magnetics； they are amazingly useful.
Here are the magnetized surfaces we’；ve found so far： our steel apartment door， the medicine cabinet door (inside and out)， iron bathtubspersonalized baby blankets， certain walls that have steel studs behind them， and especially， the refrigerator door. Rather than tacking the usual small photos， mementos and lists to it， we’；re contemplating having a poster made that would cover its entire surface， mural-like.

In 2009, artist Lee Walton exhibited his “destination specific” sculptures: brightly colored, asymetrically-shaped slabs of plywood, dated, with directions for being taken taken out of the gallery and “displayed elsewhere”. ?He drove one to a field and leaned it against a tree stump. From a distance: a winter field with a surprising blast of red.
