There are three written elements that contribute to this image which champions the concept of Intimacy. In the form of a letter or postcard including an Australian Postage Stamp, the two separated edge notations read;
...and the danger that might wait along the way.
...hoping and despairing over it.
In the centre collage the Encyclopaedic definitions of intimacy in its various forms and etymologically connected words is collaged, then worked over to become included as part of the visual presentation. The total image is manuscript-like and combines written text with textural treatments including count strokes and crazing marks suggesting a brittle or aged quality.
