Damaged by Sea Water
Damaged by Sea Water is my submission to Posted/Unposted. The UK project was curated by Imi Maufe and Angie Butler. I was invited with 23 other creative practitioners who use letterpress in the UK/EIRE to contribute to this publishing project.
My submission explores letters lost in the post. An envelope contains a pamphlet based on a letter lost in an airplane crash, and having been recovered, delivered with the postal marking 'Damaged by Sea Water'. The letter itself chases a response from earlier correspondence that was possibly never received.
The locations listed on the envelope are the sites of real plane crashes where post has been recovered (taken from Bath Postal Museum).
Edition of 50, forty of which were submitted to the project for exhibition and the 23 other practitioners.
