From the article:

Dear Ruth negotiates the bounds between archive and artwork. By displaying lost fragments of a personal archive, this site-specific installation explored the history of suburban living and the means through which we remember such forms of living. Through repetition, magnification, and close-up detail, the piece is haunted by questions surrounding the nature of nostalgia, the relationship between the personal and the generic, the public and the private, the everyday and the aesthetic, and the way in which memory is embedded in material objects and intimate spaces.
