Letters of Venus is an artist book done in the graphic novel/manga style. The book is 36 pages and, A5 in size and printed in color. The concept of the book came to be after combining two things: a short story the artist had written in highschool as well as the question, “When is a letter, a letter?” A summary of the story is as follows: After receiving a mysterious letter, a young artist’s painting is brought to life, whisking her away on a magical journey of wonder, trust, and self love.

However, for the artist, the use of tarot cards is but a conversation, a tete a tete with her cards and herself. Each card was drawn at a random time and place in the day, and the project of creating this book lasted for about 3 months.

Time-based Media

What is Time?
2019
Video (color)
52 seconds

Warning: Contains rapid flashing

What is Time? is a video that explores what time is as a subject and as an object. The video explores the concept of what time is through the use of collocations and idioms in the English language, expressing that time can be so many things without us noticing how much it is present in our daily lives. “Do we control time, or does it control us, or is it simply a manmade construct?” is something the artist thought about often while making this piece.
