In the spirit of mail art, Webb-Ellis have exchanged handwritten letters with posthuman philosopher Francesca Ferrando, artist Jade Montserrat, writer Péjú Oshin, and biologist Rupert Sheldrake, around the themes of language, the body, our present moment and possible futures - from a posthuman and deep time perspective.

They have also collaborated with philosopher Grace Lockrobin, who led a group of 9-12 year olds to inquire into questions of geological nuclear waste disposal and how humans might communicate its presence to future beings up to 100,000 years into the future.

The letters, drawings, transcripts and paintings from these exchanges are collected together in Markers, a printed publication designed by Rose Nordin. To request a free copy of the publication to be posted to you, get in touch with us at [email protected].

A Markers postcard is available to pick up Monday to Friday through Estuary 2021, from The Gr@nd in Gravesend.
