Love Letters at Behind the Veil 2
February 14 – Port Townsend WA
At and around Behind the Veil 2, I created ~30 new love letters released to the world, an art form I dearly treasure. These were rolled into scrolls, tied with a charming yarn, and edges burnt.
A couple requesting letters to each other, waiting to read them at their hotel room on her best Valentine’s ever… one to a cat… one for a father who recently passed… one to a passion for aviation… a stage prop containing a 2-person-wordplay… and some to selves, a message I am honored to help deliver. An extraordinary evening!
I came up with a scribe stamp for the back – “via ele.” – to describe that these are the sentiments of the sender as interpreted by another. Clarifies the origins and elevates the offering. I was never informed as to this practice but it was my best solution to minimize confusion without claiming complete ownership, but retaining some accountability.
