"Inspired by my love of mail art, patterned envelopes, making books, and recycling.
Each page is a former envelope. Some pages have plastic windows, some have dates etc. printed on. The cover is made from corrugated card. All of which has been through the postal service, so expect some wear and tear."
Sound Locket A ribbon of sounds contained in a necklace made from cassette tape, steel, and silk. Each pendant holds a song on a tightly wound cassette tape that was made especially for this project by soundmakers from around the world. The hand-dyed silk cord is adjustable in length and is color specific to each song. The unisex necklace comes packaged in a soft pouch within a larger box that includes a CD of all 5 tracks created for this collaboration. The CD design is also a collective effort, with each musician contributing a ring of their own artwork. Listen to samples of each track to find your favorite, or collect them all.
