Perhaps the most poignant, heartbreaking letter in our collections is this one from Lee Krasner to Jackson Pollock while they were in a period of trial separation. As far as we know, she never received a response, as Pollock died in a car crash less than three weeks after Krasner penned the letter. This letter is currently on view in our exhibit The Art of Handwriting.

In an ongoing investigation of an abandoned suburb in the middle of the California Desert, images of the landscape are distorted and technology interupts how we interpret the abandoned.

“I’ve walked a lot in the mountains in Iceland. And as you come to a new valley, as you come to a new landscape, you have a certain view. If you stand still, the landscape doesn’t necessarily tell you how big it is. It doesn’t really tell you what you’re looking at. The moment you start to move the mountain starts to move.” ~ Olafur Eliasson
