54 framed Instax-photographs with hand-written text and stickers
76,7 x 67,6 cm
Dear Diary is a artwork consisting of 54 Instax photos of the journals I have kept since I was seven years old. The dates of each journal is hand-written on top of every image and to analyse the contents of the books I have used a colour coding system with four different coloured stickers, indicating different reoccuring events in my life: adventure, anxiety, loss and drama. Besides this, the diaries laid out in chronologial order, also tell about the era they were written in, of my then interests and my changing tastes. These journals tell the story of me and my journey from childhood into adult life.
The artwork is part of the State Art Deposit Collection in Finland.
