desultory objects - 2001 onwards
An on-going series of 'take-away' postcards, concerning relationships between readers and writers, texts and images, givers and receivers. The project, which is perhaps better described as an anti-project (in that it has no foreseeable end) has an intermittent temporality driven by the happenstance of lived experience, in which chance encounters take on the significance of events through a process of synchronicity. The circumstantial components of each of these eventful experiences is represented by a postcard which together form the series. Each postcard acts as a compressed document of the greater story it represents.
The postcards are presented in exhibition contexts with purpose-made shelves, plinths or ‘dispensers’ which become sculptural forms, as and when the postcards are taken or distributed.
