Historically accurate love letters from public figureheads throughout the centuries, affixed to the walls, surrounding a chalk drawing of a forest, symbolizing the many layered depths of the soul.  A sculptural altar in the center of the room allowed visitors to add thier own love letter to the room by writing with a quill pen on provided paper, and leaving it like an offering at the base of the drawing.  Presented in 2014 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and a modified version in 2016 at the Bazemore Gallery.
