miscellaneous book pages, card, ink, wax, metal chains, satin ribbon, coffee-toned cyanotype prints

Each envelope, crafted from book pages, contains a single statement for the addressee that I think, but would never say to them.
The encasing of a private thought in such a way for me parallels how language and cognition encase our inner world, always mediating, and forever preventing us from directly apprehending even our own thoughts.

(I have blurred out the addressees in these images)

 

The Statements:
(It was a difficult decision to publish the gallery of statements – photographed before they were interned – to be authentic to the concept, the ‘meaty’ part would remain perpetually unknown.)
