Kay Healy is known for her “stuffed” wall works, printed environments that look a little like scenery for a play. There are chairs, tables, a refrigerator, a sink — printed and stuffed to look like soft, life-size relief sculptures. She recently installed what might have been the first floor of a house for her Fleisher Wind Challenge exhibition. We met Kay on Nov. 20 in her studio on Carpenter St. in South Philadelphia. In this clip from our interview she tells us about growing up in Staten Island, NY, and what happened to her one day in high school that changed her life. Catch the full episode next week.
