POST ONTO ME
Post onto Me – Love letters in Dublin:
My current personal project is using Dublin city as a backdrop to engage an audience in a public domain. This work is made up of 11 jam jars that each contains a love letter, an individually designed postcard and shell. The love letter is the same in each jar and is written to the city of Dublin. The shell represents a gift given to me from someone that made an impression on me for a fleeting moment. The jars have then been distributed around Dublin for the public to discover and engage with if they wish using Facebook as way to respond. I have used Facebook as a way of documenting the process like an online sketchbook and because of it easy accessibility as the jars are in limited supply.
Taking this body of work further I shall be using the city and the people in it to create interactive performance pieces. I hope to promote social interaction, a sense of play and hopefully have the audience view their confines with a positive outlook
