I'm interested in commercial-based, disposable materials that frequent my (and probably your) everyday life. For this particular project, I appropriate the language of magazine subscription reply cards and letters, or junk mail, to create a satirical critique of the magazine/subscription industry as well as tabloid culture. I plan to send the letters to various tabloid magazines (a taste of their own medicine), to leave them in different areas of the city and eventually send them at random through the mail.
