Letters to Dead People

Letters to Dead People is an ongoing project by Celine Song. On the project's Facebook page, Song describes it as "Letters to people with no physical heartbeat, emptied bladder, dilated pupils, no consumption of air."

The template of these letters is always the same: a black background in the shape of a square upon which is typed, in caps-lock white font, a short letter written to a famous person who has died. The length of the letters vary (the shortest one, addressed to J.R.R. Tolkien, reads simply: "GEEK"). The letters are by turn serious, funny, or inspiring, but each of them captures, in the most concise way possible, a certain aspect of each dead person's life or legacy.

This is Celine Song's letter to Sylvia Plath, which can also be found here at her website:
