The voyeur in us is really enjoying We Think Alone is a new project from artist Miranda July which gives us a peek at some of our favourite stars emails.
The concept is simple: 20 e-mails over 20 weeks from the Sent folders of, amongst others, Girls creator Lena Dunham, actress Kirsten Dunst and Rodarte sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy.
Two weeks in and the results so far have been revealing.
In Mondays email that gives advice, Dunham helps K with her man trouble saying he wants to suck the kindness out of you.
On the same theme a cryptic email from Rodarte to V simply says whiskey sours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! which sounds like great advice to us.
Kate and Laura have been friends with Miranda for years: Were great admirers of her creativity and the way she re-examines everyday experiences.
It seems a day in the life of Dunham involves avoiding crazy purchases as last weeks theme of money saw her reveal that a $24,000 sofa was just too expensive we agree!
Kirsten Dunsts e-mails reveal she is more of a practical sort writing to H that My friend Jessica is buying my car for 7,000 but this week was unable to locate an email that gives advice.
