Dear __________,

It’s been an eternity! I’ve been thinking about you endlessly.

Dear Body, thank you for the years of good health and bad. At least it was only an earache. Dear Nietzsche, what a bitter man you can be—why so gloomy? Dear Sadness; Dear Little Lamp; Dear Executor of my Will; Dear Younger Self; Dear Older Self; Dear Deer.

In this generative workshop will revive the epistolary—let’s write to everything and everyone. And then we’ll let the letter evolve and take another shape: a memo, a document, a slide show, an Excel sheet, wherever your imagination takes you.

Come join me and play.
