The Lost Museum by The Jenks Society for Lost Museums.

About the project:

The Jenks Museum of Natural History and Anthropology, one of Brown University’s vanished museums, has been given a second life.

A group of students, professors, and artists calling themselves “The Jenks Society for Lost Museums” has spent the past year researching the Jenks Museum, re-collecting scattered relics and remnants, and transforming words into rooms and fragments of curatorial description into spectral art. They have built a three-part installation that re-imagines the office of the museum’s founder, showcases the remaining fragments of the collection, and conjures the ghosts of artifacts once found in the museum back into existence – as reimagined by over 80 artists…

It is a work of art that relies on subtlety and rewards the curious, a story that displays loss over time and demonstrates the uncertainties of preservation, an exhibit that presents a memory of the past and promotes hope for the future.

I believe in Tomorrow.
I try to give up,
But the sunrise calls
My name
Again.” M.S. (via coffee-crinkled-pages)

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.
