Love Letters Leave No Trace is a multipart, many year performance and documentation project that explores the environmental, emotional, and psychological impact of human celebration. Inspired by the imagery of children’s birthday parties, Love Letters is a series of monochromatic ritualistic “love letters” in which balloons bearing text are spontaneously installed in a landscape by the daughter of the artist. These ritual performance installations are documented, and then carefully removed leaving no trace. The debris from the celebratory love letter is collected to be built into functional objects for later use.
Each chapter of the project explores a different color palette, period of childhood development, and text
