DID YOU GET MY POSTCARD? : immediacy intimacy & the time/space compendium of remediated semi-public correspondence is the remediation of a collection of postcards received by or sent to Dave, the project’s protagonist. They are divided into individual collections, which include: Europe Trip 1985-86, East Asia Trip 1990-91, From Around the Globe, Postcards from Montréal, Postcard Politics and Sunset Postcards.
The blog/archive began as a research-creation final project for Matt Soar’s Media Research Lab, within the Media Studies MA Graduate Program in Concordia University’s Department of Communication Studies. The project, along with the eleven others produced in the class, was launched at a collective vernissage on Dec. 7, 2011.
The project has been adapted, is continually edited and revised in line with the project’s own evolution. It is not just an archive of postcards from the past. It is a living, seeing and speaking archive of postcards that continues to grow. I encourage you to visit regularly.
Below is a blog entry posted the night of the Lab’s collective vernissage:
