Description

Cut down to 3.5×5” each, the set of six embossed aluminum plates together depicting the scene of a dead dove floating in water in Venice, are modular units as postcards. Transformed from digital photographs into tactile objects, the postcards straddle between absence and presence, inviting the act of writing and addressing someone; and wander between the animate and inanimate in that they at once cast a death mask upon the referent out of a need to preserve (in turn making the reference a spectre) and resuscitate a “dramatic unrepeatability” (Flusser, Into the Universe of Technical Images). Taking the stance of an undecidable, the postcards are a preserved event dismembered, decontextualized, displaced, and resuscitated. They travel in parts, arriving at the receiver with tactile sensibility—a spectre that touches.
