The Lost Art of Letter Writing
Counihan Gallery, Brunswick
This exhibition explored forms of communication from the past and present through a collection of glass time capsules. These pieces ranged from sentimental handwritten love letters of the past to the impersonal nature of SMS and email of today. The rapidly changing world of abbreviated communication is causing the written word to lose the personal and emotional touches which once characterised the lost art of letter writing.
