Dear Jon

United States Postal Service films, gay pornographic collections, and anti-sex propaganda illustrate how love letters and correspondence have been circumscribed by obscenity and indecency laws, and how the loss and absence of these documents has left behind a scarce historical record. I try to reverse this course by making a concerted effort to record and preserve my own relationship through video, photo, sound, and text.
