For the bathroom stall, above, titled "Is that You, Senator?" furniture maker and marquetry artist Silas Kopf ’72 asked people to send him ideas for graffiti to include on the inside doors, sending out a mass e-mail through Princeton's TigerNet discussion groups. After receiving dozens of statements and questions, including "Who needs rhetorical questions?" he asked visitors to his Easthampton, Mass., studio to pick out a line or two and add to the door in their own handwriting. Kopf made a man's feet in marquetry - the craft of piecing together different materials to make a design - using inlaid natural woods. Kopf is a leading practitioner of marquetry and inlay in America. "Is that You, Senator?" was part of a solo exhibition of his furniture at Galley Henoch in New York from Nov. 15 through Dec. 8.
