Dead Letter Room (2021–ongoing)

Dead Letter Room is a photographic and textual dialogue with images that emerge from the end of the Asia-Pacific Wars and World War II in the Pacific. These images are governed by the historical contexts that produce them; they are mediated by the explosive aftershocks of nuclear war, the transoceanic space of imperial desire, and the onset of oblivion in the aftermath of catastrophe. Aggregating photographic and filmic materials from the postwar Pacific, original photographs, and a series of epistolary texts, Dead Letter Room negotiates the intimacies and animacies that exist between members of the photographic citizenry across time, and contends with history as the catastrophe of the present.
