paper cut letters
Emails, sms messages, twitter, whatsapp...all examples of current everyday written communication. We get in touch with others via computers and telephones. Handwriting, for centuries a mirror of our spirit, is rapidly disappearing. Written letters played witness to who we were and what we were like. But does anybody write letters anymore?

The artist Annie Vought has clearly had this reflection to the fore in her project ¨Paper cut letters¨. She has enlarged handwritten letters and with the same patience we used to have when writing letters, she has cut out the words and formed sculptures with them. Without a doubt a thought-provoking, simple yet fascinating piece of work.
