a lover’s discourse is a participatory art love project in which strangers around the globe are conversing in hand-written love letters.

It’s about the thrill of receiving a personal handwritten letter in the mail from a stranger who somehow knows and loves you. It’s about the place of language and intimacy in a culture caught up in compulsive modernity. It’s about our ever-evolving world and how the Earth can alternately feel too large and too small a place, and sometimes… just right.

These strangers have been paired together as lovers, with the result of uniting in curiously intimate exchanges.

This will be a sharing of the project from Melbourne-based participants.
