cor-re-spond-ence functions as a woven commentary on communication, which questions the current status of handwriting. The use of double weave in this piece creates a graphic pattern which is embedded within the handwoven structure, emulating written text and lines of communication with the hundreds of hanging connecting threads between the panels. It creates an opportunity to consider the remaining validity in human connection that is tied to handwritten text, for example- recognizing the handwriting of someone you know very well.
In an era where methods of corresponding are constantly in a state of development and innovation, is there still value in the handwritten letter? Aside from efficiency, what differs when having an ongoing letter correspondence, versus an email chain? Perhaps the act of slow communication is inherently more gratifying than the instantaneous result of messages formed in the digital space. Or alternatively, because letter writing is no longer a necessary method of communication, it is now more highly revered as a sentimental act.
