to/from | beech wood covers, accordian bound 6” x 6” x 1.5” each
to/from is a collection of messages sent to my best friend over the past year via myspace and okcupid.com, a free online dating site. With these books, I aimed at capturing the essense of how communication between the sexes is so varied and humorous. My friend thinks its odd how many strange people have written her messages via these sites, however, I think of it more as a fleeting attempt at attention and self-acceptance. It was amusing to see the various flirtaceous attempts at “woo-ing” that the various males and females took advantage of. All in all, to/from is a satirical look at communication and the online dating scene.
