"Formerly we used to represent things visible on earth, things we either liked to look at or would have liked to see. Today we reveal the reality that is behind visible things, thus expressing the belief that the visible world is merely an isolated case in relation to the universe and that there are many more other, latent realities. Things appear to assume a broader and more diversified meaning, often seemingly contradicting the rational experience of yesterday…" – Paul Klee, Creative Confession (1920)

"How We End: Fictions" is an installation of prints which accompany an illustrated book of short stories chronicling the romantic and sexual history of an unnamed and unreliable narrator. Featuring stories written by Hannah Schneider and images by Kate Stone, the collaboration and friendship between writer and artist create an openness of communication that invites visitors into a personalized space to reflect on the communication flounders involved with intimacy, break-up and heart break.
