Robin Kranitzky and Kim Overstreet's brooch Anybody's Journey is made to look like a theatrical stage. The curtains are pulled back dramatically, offering a glimpse into the scene where spindle-legged crows pull a carriage in a landscape that hovers above a woman's superimposed face. The nightmarish fairy-tale imagery may represent a voyage through the darkest corners of the mind.
