The work, titled Creature Comforts, is one of several installed by artists ahead of the October 23 opening of Extreme Materials 2; it’s now open to the public in MAG’s Lockhart Gallery.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, Danielle Julian Norton and assistants (above center) were busy building Clear, a “tunnel” made of 13,000 bars of Neutrogena soap which visitors to the show will be able to enter. The work was unveiled at the exhibition party on October 22. Above right, Gretchen Cannan of 10NBC interviews Julian Norton for Roc City Tonight. Watch the interview
