ADAM/ADAM-EVE/EVE is a wearable statement, a response to the homophobia prevalent today, that Kooistra believes to be growing. The tea-towel, manufactured by the Dutch Textile Museum, features a variation of the rainbow coloured flag that represents the LGBT movement. Kooistra stresses an interaction between the colours unseen in the original: the stripes appear as if painted on, with the paint still dripping, overlapping one another.
