Letters Production!

May 8, 2011

We are intending to spread some letters randomly to people to tell them about the project and what they should do, then we will see how many replies we will get :)!  Hopefully more than one… So in order to encourage all of you to make use of mail and its properties as much as possible, we are putting time and effort in doing the same! It is only fair :)… We used prints, ink, colors, highlighters and of course it is hand written, in order to explain our project and what should people do!… Here is the latest version, take a look and tell us what you think? Our aim is to reach 500 :) Wish us luck by sending us your letter!

Deadline Topic#1

May 6, 2011

As much as we hate the sound of the word “deadline”, we need to have one in order to share all your experiences, artworks, and thoughts, with other people. We will then create an exhibition in which we collect and show all the letters we received. Of course NO personal information (like name nor address) will be shown nor exhibited, it will be absolutely anonymous.

The Deadline for the first topic is then on the 26th of May 2011, Express yourself about what change means to you in a letter (check Topic #1 for more insight), and send it to the address below before May 26th.

We will announce the day of the exhibition soon… Keep posted!

Waiting for your letters :)
