Philippe Safire handcrafted a copy of the message icon with pixelated edges in gold material. Delivering the object from its virtual dimension, the artist explores the powers afforded to this digital symbol. Unsealed, the envelope reveals an intimate human conversation, as text is projected onto the sculpture. Safire underscores the fragility of privacy during the ritual of online sharing.
