I may try and see this, deals with objects and space so got to be worth a look.

Following my visit to Joseph Cornell, Wanderlust at the RA today here are a few pictures dealing with boxes and compartments.

Absolutely no idea why I just thought of Alice in Wonderland, but I did, so here she is.
What is Postcrossing?
It’s a project that allows anyone to receive postcards (real ones, not electronic) from random places in the world.Learn more.
How does it work?
- Request an address and a Postcard ID
- Mail a postcard to that address
- Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!
- Register the Postcard ID you have received
- Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!
This is a project I have recently started to participate in. So far I have sent 1 postcard to Germany and received one from Hong Kong. E mail is very convenient and efficient but as a lover of objects I don’t think you can beat the physicality of snail mail. I even felt quite sad this evening when a lady whipped out her laptop on the tube even though she was travelling with a companion. The past is often remembered somewhat romantically but still, there are times when I wish we could go back to a time before cyber space. Maybe not until I’ve finished this year at Uni though otherwise my research and recording would be a lot harder!
