This Must Be the Place

That

Artist Statement

My inspiration mostly came from the book “Letters from a Nut.” The book is full of letters to stores, sports teams, hotels, and various other companies from a fictional character named Ted L. Nancy. I really liked the letter where Ted buys a sponge from a local store and complains that is haunted. He buys it and then it appears at his bed, he’s very confused and he goes to sit and the sponge is sitting at his feet. The sponge taunts him, as he says in his letter to the store. It’s scary but also funny. My intention is to bring joy to other people, and I thought it would be a fun little project to work on. 

I hope you enjoy the film, 
Nate Hetherington.

A Message from The Advent Project

You may have noticed that The Stay Home Advent Project has been a little quiet this past week. We’re taking some time to listen to the voices of the Black community and look seriously at the racist systems that we are part of perpetuating. While we’ll be back next Monday, we know our work won’t be over.

Black lives matter.

With love and solidarity,
The Advent Project
