combiner//keeper//viewer (2002)

Produced in conjunction with Brody Welch, this piece is a deeper look into the methodology of post carding. Exploiting several characteristics of the process of postcarging, combiner// replicates dual sides of one object to make one manifestation of the whole meaning, draws connections between geographical intersections, and associates bathroom stall art with the cropped art and text found upon postcards.

While the system itself becomes the sender, the user either encompass voyeuristic middle person characteristics or can reside as the end receiver, but should always be open to reading the piece in multiple ways. Keeping a bank of everything requested, allows the user to recall anything that they want or nothing at all, creating the sense of a collection. While the images used in this piece are not directly related to postcards, they do embody the temporary characteristics, travel and time constrains, and cropped styles of postcards.
