Common Properties
[8 ×] 10.5 × 14.8 cm, edition of 100, jointly published with Jo Ray at louhazelwood.com

In 2013 Lou Hazelwood and Jo Ray proposed a conversation through making, with the intention of exploring the difficulty of communicating our reality to another; pondering the gaps and overlaps that may arise as they tried to make their experiences known. Using the motif of the Venn Diagram, the superimposition of spaces situated directly opposite each other became a means of thinking about the intersection of disparate experiences. The set includes four postcards from Hull (where John Venn was born) and four from Cambridge (where John Venn died).
