A continuation of Spencer Finch's interest in the secluded life of Emily Dickinson, Palimpsest documents an upstairs hallway in the Evergreens, the adjoining Amherst, Massachusetts, home of Dickinson's brother, Austin, preserved as a time capsule since 1856. A palimpsest, the evidence of layers beneath, is a stratified visual record of previous writing or drawing now obscured. In Finch's treatment, the saturated rectangles of wallpaper, protected from sunlight by the paintings that once hung there, seem to transform from mere evidence of the passage of time into wormholes back to Dickinson.
