Friday 16. o2. 18 This is one of my new projects. I am going to make a visual autobiography for my granddaughters Daisy and Poppy. It will consist of a series of postcards with a current self portrait printed on them but with a face pasted on and a date drawn in the background. On the other side beside the address will be a series of phrases from that period of my life. The face, colour and date will change and I’m planning a series of perhaps 12 to be sent once a week.
