Materials

For "Invitation"  wanted to highlight  the tactile, hand to hand elements of the project, to include something of my environment and my hand in each piece. To make a piece to send to a particular person implied a certain a hand to hand connection and one on one exchange.

 

​I decided that each of the pieces should "fit" into an A4 sized envelope, but none would be in the shape of a rectangle. There is no "up" or down" for any of the works that compose the never-together whole. Everyone decides for themselves how they might situate and photograph the different  shapes of the piece they received.

I developed the shapes by layering papers of  different types: some thick, others thin and transparent. I often added carbon paper, which leaves a shadow on my fingers, and then, on the fingers the people who took the pieces from the white, rigid envelopes I used to send them.
