BOX OF FICTION

postcard from the sea (a sketch)


Box of Fiction is a new project in 2016. This umbrella project will include installations related to the items in the box, drawn, in all of their unruliness, into space. This project will be ongoing for several years. The first is "Postcard from the Sea" — June 29, 1919, a postcard to Rose. On the USS Von Steuben, Alex is "Homeward Bound," from Russia, close to docking in New York City harbor, after serving with the US armed forces in Siberia.


A note about the" Box of Fiction" — I found it several years ago, near the tenth anniversary of her death. An old cardboard box. The box contents: newspaper clippings, photos, and home movies. Scribbled on top of the box, and scratched out "Marie\Pictures\Home,” and on the interior of the lid “Fiction.” The writing is in my mother’s hand. The box had been her repository for ephemera, especially of her family life prior to leaving home for good in late 1957.
