Postcard Collective (collaboration)
In 2016, somanyprojects was selected to participate in The Postcard Collective. “Polarities”
After thinking about types of polarities, I was drawn toward the concept of Universal Polarity (multiversal polarity?) in which all is equal. I had a stack of old photos which had been painted over with a group of children, in 2002. I chose the photo-paintings because they were created as a collaborative project. For The Postcard Collective, holes were pressed and redistributed to represent a collective thought.
Each sent postcard was documented to display an image next to the matching artist´s received postcard. Postcards were sent out by all artists during the first of November. I sent all postcards several weeks before beginning to recieve the other artist´s cards. I find that this project satisfies the desire to find serendipity in interactions.
When mailing the postcards… I fully realized that the symbol for the Spanish “correos”/mail has an icon of a royal crown. There is presently a confrentation of independence throughout Catalunya.
