IVP2 - Beth Haynes

I chose to focus on letters as a social object. In order to achieve this, I created a collage by making numerous photocopies of actual letters I have sent and received throughout the year. The letters are all displayed in black and white, documenting the antiquity of the art of letter writing in a society that demands instant communication. I also chose to include address labels, mailing codes, and stamps in the collage, which emphasize the social paths the letters had to travel in order to connect individuals in a social way.
