10 years of Boxes and Envelopes Submission 1: Carla Cryptic

I have received the first submission for the 10 years of boxes and envelopes project. Thanks Carla for your time capsule... the temptation to peek inside is painful, I can only imagine how it will grow as the project continues.

I would love to join the dead mail-artists society... later. Cheers Vittore

From the Post Box - Field Study

I received a package from Field Study today filled with two amazing compilations; Wipe and Kart. Spent the afternoon flipping through them both and then flipping through again... must start on new submissions.

Art Strife Manifesto

Found this on the notice board at university... have decided to make an Art Strife Kit to show my support.

New Mail Art Call - 10 Years of Boxes and Envelopes

10 Years of Boxes and Envelopes - a collective and continual time capsule project

Within a box, envelope or other container place and item or items that you wish to include in your personal time capsule. This may come in the form of a letter, drawing, photo or object. You may wish to include something that is significant or symbolic of who you are at this time, or the way you perceive the world around you. What you place in your time capsule is completely up to you (please do not include any organic material as customs may confiscate them).

- Seal your vessel
- Label the outside of your container with the project tittle, your name (or alias), and the date it was sealed
- Send to

PO Box 15
QLD, 4054

Each capsule will remain sealed until the project concludes on September 1st 2019. On the day the Grand Opening will occur (location and times to be decided at a later date). At the grand opening visitors will be invited to open the capsules, the contents will be documented and exhibited (locally and on-line). All participants will receive an official certificate of participation, project ticker and post card once your capsule has been received. Please feel free to design and decorate your capsule as you please, upon being received they will be photographed and documented progressively at
