Since 2010, Fens has been reconstructing workspaces of writers, composers and visual artists. Rebuilding rooms has allowed the artist to stay, think and work, enabling him to create virtual residencies. In Writing in Amherst, he decided to bring a chair, desk lamp and beloved books, collections of Burnside, Bishop, Whitman and Thomas, injecting his own identity.
