Heart shopping bag

Sweet Heart
"The first wealth is health"

Postcards pt. 4

The quality assurance stickers create an interesting juxtaposition between impersonally manufactured and revealing a human presence. The interaction is subtle. I hardly noticed the sticker and even put it through the wash before peeling it off. With the thread perfectly woven the sticker reminds me that this product was made by people. Although the communication with this textile worker was asymmetrical, I know a human put the sticker on and I took it off after I received the message that it passed inspection.

Animorphizing danger

Red-balloon card

I took a picture of Sacré-Coeur and Albert Lamorisse's film The Red Balloon inspired me to add a balloon!

Doctor's note

It seems weird to me that people need doctors' notes for work. Like, are we still in middle school and need a hall pass to prove we asked and were granted permission to use the rest room? It seems like by the time people become adults, and especially middle-aged adults, we should be past this by now.
