The drawers on the wall represent the brokens lives and blown-away homes of New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina showed up.

Jana Napoli painstakingly collected the drawers, labelled each one and stuck them together. It's an evocative example of everyday things, at first ignored and 'taken for granted' in the lives of the people, then destroyed as part of a huge tragic event, and now faithfully representing both life and tragedy.

In the end, even the small things count.
