Thank you again so much for allowing us to work on making the Other Travel Project happen.
We wanted to deliver a very important message to you from Shandra and Nancy, our blow-dried devoted secretaries:
It is almost September and the AC has been running non-stop here at the Other Travel Office, filtering the Other World’s well-known summer dust storm. Summer has been really productive and exciting here at the Other Travel Office. We have some exciting news about the project to report. In order to achieve the best documentation of the gift exchanges, we have been in touch with several “witnesses” from your dimension who will be present for the specific artist delivery and report on the events they experienced. We are very honored to work with such talented people. It has been challenging organizing the deliveries at times and locations that would accommodate the artist and witness(s) of each delivery, which has led to a radical re-writing of our entire schedule. Because of these changes we have decided to push our deadline back a few months to make room for some of these important additions. We are so excited to be sending your packages in January that we already have your addresses filled out and ready (those who have not send us your address feel free to do so anytime).
We are so grateful for your contribution and patience, dear backers, and want to take the time to come up with a publication at the level of your incredible support.
In the meantime, we wanted (could not wait) to share with you some images from our last two deliveries.
On Sunday July 29th, the Mediums travelled to architect Nancy Copley’s residence: a diamond shaped house in the middle of the forest upstate New York. The witnesses for this very emotional and magical delivery were writer/artist/mathematician Charlie Hankin and photographer Dan Mc Mahon. Here are a few photos of the delivery. Her Other spun and used wool sheered from Nancy’s 8 alpacas to make the piece. The shape represented by the wool is inspired by the structure of the diamond shaped house she spent many years making. Architect Nancy Copley has called the Office multiple times since the delivery, leaving the most loving messages at her Other’s address and expressing her excitement in making a response piece.
On Tuesday August 2nd, the Mediums opened a portal in Brooklyn inviting duo Twin-Gemz to find a glitter pink castle installed in a basement with the help of a treasure map. Gifts from the duo’s Others were carefully displayed behind the locked door of the castle. Fortunately, they found the key. This delivery was witnessed by writer and photographer Daniel Arnold.
Both of us are totally in awe... We are intensely excited and overwhelmed with gratitude for you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and generosity. We are so excited to keep moving with Other Travel and will keep you posted on our progress.
Keep an eye out for our survey so we can connect you with your presents : ))))With love,
Hayden and Meriem

These last 2 weeks have been extremely exciting and we are SO GRATEFUL for the 76 individuals who have contributed to the project! We can only begin to express how deeply grateful we are for your participation in Other Travel... thank you for your support!
If it is at all possible please pass our page along to friends and fellow holographic admirers who you feel may be interested in supporting the project.
The majority of that sum (8,500) will go to to the actual printing and binding of the publication. The rest of the budget will go to our graphic designers and documenting the physical exchanges (1,000) and 500 will take care of some of the materials for the packages/installation. It is really important to us that the book is something that is tactile and physically substantial. We are trying to create something that is conceptually interesting but is able to stand on its own as well conceived art object in the form of a book. We are extremely dedicated to making this book well worth your time and hands : )))
Last night invitation deliveries were made to the homes of several artists in the New York area so if you happened to see a light blue or pink blog floating around your neighborhood dont be alarmed! We are so pleased to share with you that Travis Boyer and Twin Gemz have joined on as the next 2 artists! We are extremely excited about this and cant wait to give each of them their installation/package...
Thank you again for your support! If you are in New York please try to come by Heathers next Thursday, both the Other Travel secretaries will be in house as well as a few surprises...
