I started Letters to a New Generation as an artist-in-residence in the Economics Department at Cornell University University in Ithaca, NY. To start, I lined the hallways with bland, tan pouches with uniform, blank price tags. I then asked people to write letters to the future generation. I inserted each letter into a pouch, first turning it inside out to reveal the brightly colored, unique, hand-adorned lining that I had collected from around the world. The idea was that, as we looked beyond ourselves to the future generation, we could turn the entire space from entirely bland to full of texture and pattern. At the end, I stitched the bags shut, creating time capsules to be opened by an artist in the year 2100.
