I have 1,564 followers on Twitter. I wanted to do a massive project to learn more about everyone. (Some are people I’m very good friends with, some are people I work with, and some are people I’ve never met before in my life.)
My first idea was to take a portrait of each follower. But then Sebastian suggested asking each of my Twitter followers for a postcard instead. This is a much easier project, given continental drift and my small public radio salary.
The address is:
Melody Joy Kramer
900 Market Street
PO BOX 1724
Philadelphia PA 19105
Please include your Twitter handle and a short message (which can be anything you find interesting.) I will scan and document the postcards as they come in. There’s no thematic requirements, there’s no directions, write whatever you’d like.
I’m very excited to see how we can use an ephemeral medium to create something that extends well beyond the Internet.
Thank you for participating!
