Letters to Ourselves is a collective portrait of women.
Using lines, experiences and feelings from many who share their story with me. Asking them to write a letter to themselves in an intimate way. Who are you? What are you afraid of? What are your dreams? What defines you? . These questions created a base line and show in many cases the impossibility of wanting to be heard.
The use of “readers” allow for some to express their lives in a more aggressive way. Never the less no questions are answered, but for a couple of seconds some confusion occurs when a group a women become one by sharing pieces of their lives.
