Nothing to be Written

Part artwork, part documentary, Nothing to be Written tells the stories behind ‘field postcards’ one of the few communication options WWI soldiers had with their families. Nothing was to be written on them as communication was only allowed through the prescribed phrases. Moving, haunting and emotive, the experience is a powerful and poignant exploration of the human stories beyond the edges of the postcards. This award-winning experience is set to an original score by composer Anna Meredith, commissioned by the BBC VR Hub and created by 59 Productions. This project is part of the Future Art and Culture programme at SXSW, presented by British Underground and supported by Arts Council England.
