John Pena, Letters to the Ocean

“One day in the winter of 2003, I sent my first of many letters to the Pacific Ocean. Within two weeks it was returned with heavy pen marks negating the address and a black stamp that read: “Return to Sender: no such place exists.” I then sent another letter with more specific directions and two weeks later it was returned again with the same markings. For the last eight years, I have sent a letter to the Pacific Ocean every day. I currently have about 2,000 returned letters.”
