(yes). pre-apocalypse postcard.

found image as intertext, 2017

Editor’s note: In every issue of PRJ, we include an intertext of reinterpreted found objects or images that run parallel, and sometimes counter, to the issue theme. In the Worksongs for the Apocalypse issue, the intertext takes the form of found vintage postcards, each with a handwritten “yes” somewhere on the image. We’ve interpreted these cards and the yeses as a sort of rememory, someone in a world of gray skies far from the life they once knew looking through the paper archives of a lost world and affirming in ink their connection to what they’ve lost. Each yes both reconnects the writer to that world and acknowledges the writer’s distance from it.
