I love the way Melissa Pokorny's sculptures (and now, her photographs) feel like sentences with nouns strung together, but you have to fill in the verbs. Chairs, linoleum floor, pin cushion, gym towel, tiny moss forest, cascading water?

...our collective imaginings of enchanted spaces such as caves, underwater grottoes and forest glades, wherein the ghostly and magical find refuge. These “things” come from estate sales in and around Urbana, Illinois. The photographs were taken at various tourist sites, national parks, and wilderness areas in Missouri and Kentucky.
