Did You Get My Postcard?

postcard_world_mapDID 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 David, the project’s protagonist.

It 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 postcard remediations are displayed chronologically in bulk based on the date they were initially mailed. They are subdivided into collections listed in the right-hand column links. Two collections are from extended trips that David took in Europe 1985-86 and in East Asia 1990-91. Another set is of postcards from around the globe that have been sent to David or that David has sent himself since his collection began. Two special categories: Sunset Postcards and Postcard Politics were added to the project as bonus mini sections that include postcards that were not necessarily received nor send by David. The newest collection are postcards from Montréal: new digital postcards produced to introduce a creative component to archival nature of the project, hence giving it life.
