No One Receiving  is a site specific installation created for the BioPol Laboratories in Skagastrond, Iceland. The piece consists of two light-based morse code transmissions that were simultaneously projected out to sea. Each message tells a story of unrealized love. One is a transcription of a love letter that I wrote to someone who did not return my feelings; the other is a traditional Icelandic love story.  The piece could be viewed from inside or outside the space, where it was also visible to boats in the nearby harbor. I was compelled by the idea of lonely, faraway seafarers discovering these mysterious messages and becoming engrossed in the intimate yet anonymous stories. This embodies the ideas at the core of the piece— the desire to connect with another person and the limits of language to communicate complex emotions.
