I have shipped blankets of yellow plush to be hung from clothespins. Bear with me: cliché of neighbours connected by clothes lines, ascribed to antipodes. Bear with me: the industry to get these blankets shipped from New York to New South Wales. Bear with me: the industry to refill toner to print these yellows. Bear with me: this may be the most overwrung laundry day the world has ever seen. With care and laundry as a postcard, I am sending you my dirties.

This work is part of the Cementa Initiative, ‘Correspondence of Imaginary Places’
