Typical of my work in that it engages the viewer in a real and unmediated experience, bringing unsuspecting rituals of life under the lens of art. It reads as a street sign, depicting a ‘Dear John’ voice mail message, exposing an instance of vulnerability through the use of language (via mobile voice recording technology). It uses language and humor as a shield against pain at the death of a relationship. Death by heartbreak. Back story: it is a true story.
