Analogue Notes is my 2020 community art project. It’s designed to encourage handwritten correspondence via a handmade work of art.
The General Idea
You create some kind of line drawing or hand-lettered piece in black in white. I will turn it into a cyanotype postcard, and return it to you with a stamp on it ready to mail. You then add a handwritten note to someone special to you along with their address. I will drop it in the mail for you that same day!
It’s also a collaborative celebration of the long tradition of handwritten correspondence sent through the mail on a piece of custom made art.
How to Participate
To participate, email (ironically) a scanned or photographed line drawing that you make to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The line drawing should be made on white paper (copy paper would work perfect) using a black marker. Markers will produce smooth, graphic lines which will translate better as a cyanotype print.
Within 10 days, I will print the drawing as a cyanotype and have it ready for pick-up at the my Hillsdale County Farmers Market stall.
The price for each postcard is $3 and includes a postage stamp already adhered to the card.
A Community Exhibition of Analogue Notes
This project will conclude with a fall public exhibition of the Analogue Notes produced between July 1st and August 31st. The exhibition location will be announced at a later date.
