Found Supplies as Mail Art

I love this project! Love it love it. I’m not even going to try to explain it, here’s what the website says:

In 2004 a holiday project at the University of Brighton titled ‘Location Vocation Vacation’ called for mail art. One post card per week was to be sent as a document of experiences to Margaret Huber, the then second year Illustration tutor.

Around a hundred and fifty A6 sized cards have since been sent (and received) from all over the world. Hair, fish, a sachet of white powder, a piece of broken record, mossy bark… all dutifully delivered by postal workers. Only five cards have never reached their destination, (a few of those due to very poor crocheting)

Margaret still receives mail at irregular intervals.

See all the other cool post cards here!
