For this project I made a hundred postcards that are pre-paid. They have instructions on the back and a different image on the front of each one. I gave them to friends and relations and anyone I thought would reply. It feels quite risky placing your trust and art work in other peoples’ hands, in the hope that they add to the cards enthusiastically. The important elements of this work are interaction, correspondence, collaboration, curiosity and discovery.
