Title of work Message to Me 2012
Part 2 - 2012
On 11th July 2012, I posted back the message cards to the participants schools and homes.
The postcards collected number nearly 300 and include international visitors from USA, Australia, France, Germany and The Netherlands. The majority of participants are Hackney residents from 3 to 80 Years old.
The installation was displayed again on 14th July at Hoxton Street and 22nd July at De Beauvoir Gardens during the Shoreditch Festival 2012.
At the Hoxton Street exhibition, I met a person who participated this project in 2008 and received his card but he couldn't remember how he got involved at all.
I also received emails from participants and one said,
"Surprised! It is like a ghost of festivals past. It makes me think how quickly time goes by and how precious time is, and how fleeting all things are. I also feel reassured that you remembered to send the postcard! Thanks Kat"
