Work (click on pics to enter galleries) > Aerogramme - Mailbox 141  (5)

CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE & VIEW GALLERY Aerogramme is a continuation of my nostalgic installation project. The installations that comprise this series have included an archival element, often a photograph or text. These archival elements are suggestive of an ideal time and place; one that is just out of reach. For Mailbox 141 in Melbourne's Flinders Lane the mailboxes are filled with alternating blue and red gells with the aerogramme pattern above the box doors to suggest another way of communicating, now long gone.
