1 SO MUCH SEA, SO MUCH SEA | 2000-11

Driven by solitude––during a lengthy sojourn away from Brazil––, I began to keep a personal diary on post cards. The processes of selecting, writing, posting, and receiving the cards was a comforting one and reminded me of my childhood, when I collected stamps and cards not addressed to me and fantasized about journeys I had not yet made.

  • post cards, stamps and postage stamps, glassine and Kraft paper envelopes
  • variable dimensions
  • OTHER EXHIBITIONS: ‘Casa Forte,’ Centro Cultural Banco do Nordeste, Juazeiro do Norte and Fortaleza, Brazil

2 ENVELOPE-STUFFING | 2006

In this moving image, randomly captured by the webcam, I am stuffing post cards from my personal diary into envelopes. Movement is repetitious and monotonous; the projected image seems faded due to the intentional presence of natural light.
