Each year we create works in hopes to embrace the public more directly. Our intention considers site specific locations, collaboration, and community involvement. Paul and Jen were married 15 years ago and continue to dive into the sea of facts and fictions, try not to drown, and go home with sand in their underwear.

Love Letters Lost 
between strangers
.
We asked artists, writers, postal carriers, husksters, and locomotive engineers to compose a love letter, which was then hand delivered to a perfect stranger in a clandestine manner.
.
Because love is sneaky like that.
.
.
.

You love your kids, you loved your Toyota, you love Obama, you love God, you love poetry, you love David Lynch. It's everywhere, ambiguous, full of nothing- as in tennis (score of love).
We are convinced that this will be a revealing experiment for both writers and recipients.  Each letter included a blank postcard for response.
How would you feel if you received a love letter from a stranger?
