  • Sunday News article in Lancaster Entertainment Section, front page on Father's Day about the artwork on The OCD Project

    3 Faucets and 1 2 3 made the front page of the Entertainment section via a brilliant write up in The Lancaster [PA] Sunday News. The article was written by Stephen Kopfinger; who has high familiarity with OCD from a previous great article he did on Oprah's OCD Camp (with Dr. Oz and Philadelphia anxiety expert Dr. Jonathan Grayson). Here's an excerpt from the article: "Those levels tie together in such works as "3 Faucets," which at first blush looks like a benign, if abstract, representation of folded hands. But in the light of OCD: Are those hands clasped in prayer and contemplation, or engaged in frantic washing?"

    From The OCD Project: Liz enters the meeting room, in front of the painting titled 3 Faucets, and shows Kristen to her room. Kristen thinks it is a "sick joke" that all 6 patients will be sharing one bathroom. Video courtesy of Vh1.
