New postcard ‘art’ piece: ‘It’s certainly not about the truth’

I’ve long been a postcard collector & thought it about time to get them out of shoeboxes & onto the wall. But how to present them interestingly & differently? I didn’t want a simple collage because the postcards represent various mixed moments, memories and mementos. They’re like a kaleidoscopic, splintered history, so I decided to (painstakingly) cut dozens of postcards into thin slivers, mix them up thoroughly, and then randomly stick them onto the canvas in vertical stripes. All fun.
