Artist Miranda July’s 'We Think Alone' project consists of weekly emails from notable people on personal topics like money and advice.

Multihyphenate Miranda July’s latest art project is a study in intimacy and mundanity. For 20 weeks, anyone who signs up to ‘We Think Alone’ will receive an email that contains within it emails from 10 well-known (and some lesser known) names, focusing on a different topic each week. While the celebrity aspect — with Lena Dunham, Kirsten Dunst and Kareem Abdul-Jabar all participating — has caught the media’s attention, it is July’s hope that as the weeks progress, readers will see beyond the names in their inbox and see the humanity that can be gleaned from something as clerical as an email.
