A letter to a stranger sitting on a bench

The audience was invited to sit on a handmade half circular wood and metal bench and read a letter addressed to them. The intimate connection between the artist, the viewer and the object was established though an honest and immediate tone of the letter, the open ending of which together with the viewer’s direct experience of the object allowed him/her to become part of the ongoing story of the object.
