On the Move reminds us of the journeys that we take – real and imaginary – as children and adults; our longing to explore the unknown, acquire new identities, to be grownup. As transportation, bicycles and skateboards take us to familiar and unfamiliar places. Skates challenge us to go faster and farther. Toys accompany us on our make believe trips.
Please Write looks at mechanical objects used to communicate; pens, typewriters, celebratory stamps, and postage meters. These objects have been vital instruments in transmitting our messages. They show how advances in technology have altered how we communicate, can be life-changing, and how the power of letters resonates forever.
