The discipline of the postcard is a short distilled message that lands on your doorstep and brings a “hello, I’m thinking of you.”
I think back so fondly on the sending and receiving of these little hellos and points of connection. My postcards are a modern take on this tradition. By making them 60 seconds (plus a wee moment to read the text) they too are a distilled account of events that happen to me in my daily life. The beauty of sending via email and social media is I can bring them to life both visually and aurally. They allow me to create in a way I’ve never been able to express before. I record films on my phone and create the music in my home studio playing the harp and flute, singing and using found sounds. I embrace the limitations of my resources – I love the fact they are wobbly, not polished and DIY! I am on a very new journey with recording having just completed HRA for women.
My intention is to create a little moment of calm, humour or joy to radiate out into the world to where it is needed.
