In my youth, I had attempted to communicate with deceased loved ones through correspondence. Writing long letters, lighting them up and watching the plumes of smoke drift upwards to Heaven. I have since evolved to a paper pulping ritual which is often more cathartic. This body of work is made from salvaged letters that I had initially 'destroyed'.
