A Repressed Love Story – from both sides was created as part of The Tellurometer Project, which investigates modes of communication and dialogue. It was initiated in 2011 by artists Helen G. Blake, Joanne Boyle, Rachel Fallon, Raine Hozier-Byrne, Laura Kelly, Joanna Kidney and Susan Montgomery.
The Postal project is an on going sequential call-response investigation of how artists in a preformed group might navigate a non-physical working space. A designated artist initiates a cycle which elicits a response from the next artist, this is continued until the cycle has come full circle.
