An Exhibition of 400 Found Notes

For 12 years, Sydney-based artist Laura Sullivan has been collecting discarded handwritten notes. The first one was a fairly dull shopping list, but since then she has found love notes, pro/con lists about romances, and very strange information on Post-It labels. She says she prefers the notes to come to her—she doesn’t go searching, “That sounds cheesy right? But it’s kind of true. I do get excited on bin day, though.” An exhibition of 400 of her finds—called “Found by Laura”—will open 16 February at Sun Studios, Sydney. For those who can’t see it in person, follow her project on Instagram. Read more at The Creators Project.
