Mysterious letters to everyone in the world + amazing stop motion animation

mysterious letters to everyone in the world

Imagine deciding to write a personal and unique letter to everyone in the world… Lenka & Michael did just that, here’s what they have to say about it, “In April 2009, we sent a personal, handwritten letter to each of the 467 households in the small Irish village of Cushendall. We hoped these unsolicited letters would prompt neighbourly discussion, spreading across the town, promoting community curiosity.” To see the letters larger and be able to read them more clearly click this.

I have to link to this incredible stop motion animation. 60,000 pictures shot, 9,600 prints developed, and more than 1,800 pictures shot again. No post production!

This weekend we’re going to visit my aunt and uncle in Gloucester Mass (where the Perfect Storm took place). We’ll go to the beach for long walks, to a lobster pound so that my dad can teach my husband how to eat a lobster the New England style, we’ll take an outdoor shower (really nothing is better), and we’ll enjoy being away from the city a bit. It will be hard for me not to be working on art stuff and checking email and blogs but it will also be really really good for me to take a little break… I think. I have a couple of posts lined up for Mon-Tues, till I get back. Then I’ll post some pictures from the trip. Have a great weekend yourselves. XO.
