"A series of scans of a letter addressed to ‘the reader’. Here I was thinking about messages to the viewer, analogue forms of communication like snail-mail and posting zines, and how to present this in a digital context. Exhibiting the work on social media meant that I could delay the time between posting each stage of opening the letter. I wanted to create a playful but intimate dialogue between the person reading on their laptop or phone, and me at the other end of this internet-postal-line, sharing the images of a letter slowly being opened."

As part of BALTIC Self-Publishing Artists' Market 2018 the Women Artists of the North East Library had a one-day residency in BALTIC Library researching the collection for records of exhibitions and projects by women artists associated with the North East. The documents found were pulled out of the collections to form a new online reading list of BALTIC Library. This also contributed to the Women Artists North East Library’s research.

This book now forms part of that reading list.
