"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Quarantine Prompt a Day <3 Through that Window

17 March 2020

Often we’re too busy to notice the view right in front of us. One of my students, when I asked about what they missed being away from home, softly described the view of the city at night from his bedroom window in what he called ‘the projects where I live.’ 

“At night,” he said, “the lights go on forever, and every light, I think, is a soul.” 

Make art about seeing the world through your window.

Make art about feeling overwhelmed, about stopping to breathe in the midst of the onslaught, about caring for yourself in spite of the stress.
