the orphan letters | 2011

For this project, I solicited writing from young people who were affiliated with the Alternative High School for Santa Fe Public Schools in Santa Fe. Next, I curated these writings into pen pal letters and using a variety of networks, solicited responses from the community. The intent of this project was to examine the idea of compassion as a resource that exists beyond the barriers of class and cul­ture as well as to add to our complex understanding of our ‘local’.
