Words of Wisdom from a Man Claiming to be Fred Rogers

Words of Wisdom from a Man Claiming to be Fred Rogers is a box of 29 blurry polaroids. Muted, dark, indeterminate - they convey a sense of loss, uncertainty, ambivalence, which is heightened by the random fragments of text typed on the back. Written in response to two deaths in Wincenty's familiy, the text alternates between a consideration of the rituals we use to cope with death and random, contextless vignettes. In sum, twenty-nine reasons that it's not such a beautiful day in the neighbourhood.
