The first postcard portrays her perception of her marriage. Stifled, exhausted, and on her last straws. Akin to a caged bird, she is stuck in a stagnant relationship due to her desperation to escape the past. The second postcard conveys the beauty and terror of space. It is endless, infinite, and simultaneously desolate. She feels utterly hopeless and suffocated as she can see the possibilities but is chained to a man who refuses change. The final design evokes the suffocation of the marriage and her escape. Rectilinear forms serve as multilayered visual metaphors - jail bars, stepping stones, shadows, as well as new pathways.
