snail mail project
in this era of screens, i believe it is important as ever to share handmade art, to feel the texture of a page, to hold an object in our hands and to know that page or object was held in the hands of someone else. the connections formed through handmade objects are intimate, as intimate as the epistolary form, and i am interested in communities of intimacy.
in 2019, i started my snail mail tiny letter project to share what has been on my mind as a maker through letters and including handmade art to create closeness from afar.
each time the visual art element is unique from the last. sometimes it's a painting that is cut into smaller pieces to share with each person on my mailing list. sometimes it's a grief object in the form of poem cards. sometimes it's photographs covered in paint which can be scratched off to reveal the image.
at present, there are 57 people from 14 states and 2 countries who receive this project.
