How does a town
"When I was six, my dad killed himself and we left the old town where I was very happy. Now I go back to look for it, it isn't there..."
During the last couple of years I've been trying to locate Oldton and make sense of what happened there. From the texts, photos and other Oldton artefacts you send me, I am making a map of the place, a grid of 52 cards that locate all the people, events and emotions that have been lost until now.
Turn the cards over, and you will find a story from my own past: a pack of half-truths that represent the last remnants of a relationship with my dead dad.
