Post

In designing these postcards, I tried to recreate the artificial interface of an email using only traditional printing methods. The writing fields were created in letterpress and the back was screen printed. By using “snail mail” for short messages, I am playing with the idea of the physicality of written communication. I received responses from all across the country, but no where near as many as I sent out. Perhaps we have grown too accustomed to faster, "easier" methods of communication... or maybe our words were simply lost in the mail, along with the tradition of tactile writing.
