sending a love letter implies distance. the written word is formed in place of words that can not be exchanged in person. i wrote the love letters from wish you were here every day to my partner, whom i live with. even though we live in the shared geography of the same home, we rarely see one another; divided by time instead of geography. i wrote these letters as evidence of myself and my love. in exhibition, images of these love letters would be projected in a room of natural light, barely visible. there would be no screen to allow the images to exist, only when a human body walks in front of them would the images be truly visible. this piece is about the obsoletion of the love letter, and the importance of human contact and mark-making when communicating love.
