Dear Diary: Deanna Havas’ Youth Confession

SLEEK ASKED TEN YOUNG ARTISTS TO SHARE THEIR DARKEST SECRETS

Some are written into a secret notebook under a bed cover, torch in hand; some are posted on the internet for strangers to comment on; some are made of selfies taken every day (hour, minute) of your mood. A diary can take many forms, yet this activity of counting the days is a uniquely youthful one. In this portfolio of artworks and writing created exclusively for Sleek, we asked today’s young and youth-focused artists and writers to send us an excerpt of their diary.

After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, Deanna Havas moved to New York City to write. Alongside Jack Kahn, Havas received a Rhizome Microgrant for their PDF-based quarterly, “Well, Actually: a journal of vernacular criticism!”.
