Dear Diagrams

is an ongoing series. Each work is made from a piece of personal correspondence, which is dismantled and then reorganized according to the grammatical characteristic of each individual word: verb, noun, adjective, etc. While the "data" of the letter is disclosed, its reorganization presents a puzzle, a landscape, and an analysis of language and its structures. It also becomes a altered duplicate—a mysterious translation—of the content and emotion of these personal documents.
