Diana Kingsley (American, born 1964), Lagoon, 1997, chromogenic print, 40 x 50 in. Schwartz Art Collection, Harvard Business School, 2004.9.

"I look for evidence of human frailty and vulnerability in all its dumb glory. I'm drawn to the most commonplace situations, where poise and control are confounded by dysfunction. In Lagoon, this is reflected in a pool of blue ink that has collected in some hapless man's shirt pocket."—Diana Kingsley
