Around a hundred A6 sized cards sent to Margaret Huber from 2004 to 2006 from Japan, Finland, Spain, Russia and England. Hair, fish, a sachet of white powder, a piece of broken record etc. were sent to test the postal system. Only three cards never reached their destination. This project made it into the book ‘Postcard’, which features over 100 artists, illustrators, photographers, designers and studios/collectives from all around the world. It will be released worldwide in September 2008 by Laurence King.
Black out the unwanted dots to create your own message – it’s a tool – it’s useful – it solves a problem – it’s truly interactive and at the same time can be decorative if desired by the user – you only ever use as much of it as you really need – it’s customisable – it can bind things of a completely different nature together – it can be used for heavy-duty utility applications as well as for art installations – it allows you to physically engage with the endlessly re-producible quality of digital information – it makes whatever you have to say look more official.
