Ok, where the heck is this going?
So, yeah, I folded some letters up. "But what does it all mean!?" you may be asking.
Here's the quick, extremely provocative answer. To remind you, these are very special love letters that want to be displayed, but not read. They will be folded more tightly then shown and cast in white wax. This will give a translucent cover so some words or letters may be visible but not understood by a third party viewer. However the author/receiver of the letter will have a context for the letter through memory, even with most of the content hidden.
The reality of our memories is that the emotional response to "remembering" is more true than the recollection of facts. My goal is to preserve the emotional memory while obscuring the factual memory.
Make sense? Good. :)
