Bloom: A mail subscription project
The mail subscription project, Bloom, exists within the discourse of Mail Art and reaches an audience beyond the literal and virtual gallery space. Photography, poetry, video, painting, and relics comprise the varied approaches I use in order to engage the viewer. This project was centered around the realm of absurdity and self-love. Although the idea of feminist hair art may seem done and over to some, it was an important part of a self acceptance exploration on my part and the sharing of the self that maybe makes a positive impact on a greater, personal, and more intimate scale.
The following ephemera and documents represent the objects that I sent to five selected people, people that expressed interest previously. Over the course of one month in 2015 the selected people received a weekly update in the form of a postcard accompanied by a piece of artwork. (2015)
