“Often ignored and on the whole instantly discarded. These envelopes contain a wide variety of patterns and styles. From skewed text and numbers, geometrics, scrambled letters, to complex repeated motifs. In an era of paper communication, these patterns were designed to protect the enclosed personal data from being hacked. Either from the use of powerful lights sources or solvent applications.”

“With security in mind from an age where data control is still visible. There is an element of nostalgia combined with the issue of protecting personal data. Analogue and digital images were layered, bonded, etched, laser fret cut and printed directly onto panels of acrylic. Hand-made pendants and large format digital prints accompanied the exhibition artwork.”
