A few images of my piece at the group show Private Spaces hosted by Zoe’s Place from 13th to 17th April 2011. A bit more about the show in this interview. My work, called Write & Fold & Secret, was made of a notebook where you could leave a message to me and the cards with a website address. The message on the photos below is the only one I am aware of - it was read to me and then I decide to take picture of it.



Get involved with the project based on Douglas Huebler’s Variable Piece #4 (1969).
