Olivia  Barr
Part 2
2013
An installation in two parts that translates amorous words into form.

Part II: My most cherished love letters are a series of sexts messages. I engraved a relationship consisting mainly of sexts onto 87 pieces of glass. Each glass is 4x7.5 inches and 3/8 thick and stacked in groups of 6-8. Looking down into the stack, words collapse on each other making it mostly illegible except for some dirty words or passages. The sheen of the boxy glass allows it to function as a minimalist object, relying on the variance of light and environment. A hand held LED strip that is manually operated by the viewer will be available to read the individual glass plates. When the LED strip is placed next to a single plate in the stack only that plate will be illuminated and readable within the stack.
