In order to maintain an appropriate relationship among the texts and the elements of the installation, I edited the final contents of each letter to interact with form, to effect physical and psychical movement. The digital copy of each letter, programmed to become visible according to its time-stamp, retains the same textual characteristics: line spacing and full justification. Symmetry soothes as much as it enforces meaning and motive. Self and audience gratification in the sequence from body to text to digital—reception to understanding to empathy.
