Letters from the Border. Jenny Davis. 2009.

This piece is a collage of images taken from my collection.

It includes 2003 emails I received from a US soldier

when he was on the border in Kuwait, waiting to invade Iraq.

He described the constant multiple bombings,

the daily life of his troops and photos of what he saw around him.

One photo, the little flower, represented the hope in the dusty dry dessert.

After several months of correspondence,

I never heard from him again and have been unable to locate him.

Inspiration. Maidstone Museum Kent. England.

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

I love this place!

When I was in England a few years ago, I visited the Maidstone Museum in Kent. The Museum is housed in a charming Elizabethan Manor House, in the centre of Maidstone.

I had the whole place to myself and spent hours, strolling through large rooms, full to the brim, with stuffed animals, neolithic objects, dinosaur bones, Wordsworth, ancient artifacts, primitive tools, old toys, decorative arts and crafts, gilded manuscripts, books and old artworks. There was even an Egyptian mummy.
