This project was started during the COVID-19 lockdowns in 2020. I put an open call out for submissions from the public asking ‘What does hope mean to you in 2020’? I wanted to explore the power of Hope in such challenging times and what it means to individuals.

The sentences were submitted from all across the globe. I have been using a box of vintage travel postcards for the imagery to accompany the text, transferred onto rice paper. The text is also being used for a weaving for a Spring exhibition, which is below.
