Mysterious Letters' Mysterious Package
Share this post
Yesterday I received stuffed-full envelope from Lenka and Michael of Mysterious Letters, the project that sent a personal letter to every person in a small Irish village earlier this year and 600+ letters to a neighborhood in Pittsburgh last month. Here’s what I found inside.
Here’s what the text says:
We thought you might like an update. I will attribute each quote to an artifact (see [previous image]) for anonymity.
1) “Now I know the names of 5 neighbors I hadn’t met before”
2) “I asked everyone in the street if they got a letter”
3) “it worked like a charm”
4) “I was afraid to be at home”
5) “You have failed at art + life in general”
6) “I will keep my letter forever”
7) “it was dirty”
8) Posters have been put up in Polish Hill that read: “don’t worry, it was an art project”
9) “I hope you get bombed by the IRA”
10) “If you would like to make a complaint contact…” [name of main Pittsburgh post office]
A really big map!
Absolutely amazing. A huge thank you to Lenka and Michael. We will hang the map of Polish Hill in the Kickstarter offices with pride!
