I’m going to ask a few people who are important to me to write a letter to me as if I have, for whatever reason, forgotten my identity. The aim here is twofold, one is as an exploration of myself in the now. To see what I, as a complex individual, appear to be through the differing lenses of those around me. The second is as a time capsule. My intention is to undergo the same process in another five years and five years again after that. Hopefully this will create an interesting way to look at how I and my relationships with those around me change over the long cycle of life.
I hope this project can be a work of meaningful collaborative introspection and not just narcissistic navel gazing, but I won’t know until I have a go.
