What does the afterlife hold? Missing letters from 1934; discarded goods on New York City curbs; personal treasures in the ashes of a wildfire; endangered reptiles hiding in plain sight…countless beings, objects, and memories are salvaged and given new meaning. Every species is preserved in the cloud as pixels and code - could the simulation of our lives save us from extinction?


In 1934 Indian aerospace engineer Stephen Smith initiated his first rocket mail trial, scattering 143 letters onto the shores of Saugor Island where all but three were recovered. Drawing on epistolary narratives set at the border between India and China, Three Missing Letters speculates on the contents of these lost letters.
