This series utilises ten official documents discussing the COVID-19 pandemic, from the United Kingdom and the United States of America. Through digital editing I have erased parts of the text, in an effort to turn impersonal government correspondence into intimate confessional letters. This idea is rooted in my desire for leaders such as, Boris Johnson and Donald Trump, to display genuine empathy in discourse. During a time when we are unable to be physically close to each other, it has revealed how important language is in maintaining connection. There is a poetic exchange of some kind happening, but it is open for interpretation who these letters are to, what they’re about, and what date they were sent. Relating to the uncertainty, lack of structure and warping of time that I feel during lockdown. The text floats in a white void, with only words to fill the absence.
