JAMPFR is a folio of 45 unbound pages, wrapped in a textile cover. The pages consist of digital prints and handwritten text on opaque and translucent paper, each 12.75" x 18", the size of the flatbed scanner from which the digital images were made. The images are life-size scans of objects sent through the USPS between The Rooney Sisters from 2016-18 between the zip codes 21201 and 06511.


Poet Anne Marie Rooney and painter Julia Rooney collaborate at a distance, most often by sending objects, texts and images through the mail and working on them asynchronously.

Painters Maya Strauss and Julia Rooney began collaborating in 2017 while students at the Yale School of Art. Their collaboration began through letter-writing and has grown into various site-specific installations. 

 Mermaid Room was produced in summer 2019 during a mini-residency at Meeting House (Troy, NY), organized by artists Anita Trombetta and Claudia Santiso. It consists of found and made objects that Rooney and Strauss installed in a former church library.
