so its been a long time coming… a real long time coming… i have been busy very busy.
i have started uni again and dealing with a ton of money issues as well as moving out getting settled into my new place and then i had a lot of work at uni trying to tie his project coherently into this vision and knowledge (imagined communities). and last thing is last i have been waiting for some really bad news to sink in; recently a friend sadly passed away, so this has been a very sad week so please share a thought for those who’s loves are cut way to short and remember that no matter how bad things are there is always someone out there who cares and to take life by the balls and just live it to the fullest.
any ways onwards with this as i said i re-photographed everything i have been sent :
and so onto the things i have received lately
this was a letter drafted around widow facts about the sender (please note i am doing this from memory) it came with tones of cool facts about the fact that she really likes mini skirts, could not face her partner when they slept and tones of other really weard and random facts. it also came with a load of random cut outs from magazines.
this was one crazy package! it came with colouring items for my little sister and post card, a little item made out of coal dust; some note cards, stickers and a photo album representing the senders area! this has been used to inform the final piece of my project. i will inform you about this towards the end!
this was a pretty good package to recieve! it also had so much in as well as a wonderfull letter describing the thoughts about what she was going to send me, i thought it was lovely to read. as well as the letter i got a magnetic note pad, two sets of stickers, and a rubber.
this was a cool little post card i was sent, i remember that written on the back was the words… would it not be nice to fall into something soft, i remember thinking that it would be amazing!!!!!!
this is a letter sent by becky! she sent me a lovely letter thanking me for choosing her as the winner of the competition as well as some crazy rabbit images which will soon grace my door at uni :D. sorry you have not recieved the package yet, it is packaged its just getting money together to send it!! but hella yes it will be on its way soon!!!! im so sorry i have been so long at this.
this is some more mail art from misha who wrote about not knowing about the competition but she is glad she is a runner up!!! hehe and also that she has been back at school hence why she is so late replying to myself. she has forwarded me some work that a pen pal had sent her as well as some negatives.. to do with as i wished… if thats the write way of saying it.
i think if my memory serves me right this letter was sent by sabrina.. yes same name as me. she went to island; she writes about what she did there as well as a quick up to date about her life etc…
and last but not least
TEA i love tea and here i have been sent tea from USA and Canada.
so yes sorry for being to the point here this time but alas i thought id better give an update as it has been so long… and my room has turned into such a tip i dont even want to attempt to try and find everything so i can try and have more detail on this.
on to other news:
i have been asking you to send me images of your area to create a new image out of your images… almost like a representation of the “send something community” i had a tutorial today and it was suggested i become a little more precise with what to send so here goes! please could you send me images of the following:
. a place that you love
. a place that you dont like
. something personal to you
. something/ someplace green
. something/ someplace sunny
we are thinking the grand garden here… like nivana … eden etc. so as i said before you can send these images through e-mails and of course… mail :D and with the images could you tell me name, age, gender and place…. my tutors want to be able to see in my book that i have covered the grand spectrum of people. and remember you dont have to be an amazing photographer! and HAVE FUN WITH THIS.
