Mail Me Art Project
My mind is always racing with thoughts and ideas, which makes it difficult for me to fall asleep at night. Since I’m usually awake while the rest of the world is sleeping, I use this time to work on projects that keep me sane. My latest project is Mail Me Art (inspired from Darren Di Lieto’s Mail Me Art idea).
One of my favorite simple pleasures is receiving snail mail from someone I love (it’s 1,000x better than getting another bill). I adore keeping in touch with friends and family through letters; something magical happens whenever I write my thoughts unto paper, I find this process calms my hyper-active mind.
I usually spend a couple hours writing each letter and want the recipient to get excited before they read what’s inside, that’s why I’ll decorate the outside of the envelope/package with magazine clippings, event flyers and doodles. Its my heartfelt way of telling the other person, no matter the distance between us, you’re still an important part of my life.
