my REAL wall - Postcards from us


text for your postThis is our final REAL wall for a while as Elena and I are going travelling. We've given up our jobs, sold everything we own and have put your postcards in storage. I've taken the address down for contributions to my REAL wall and want to thank everyone who's contributed over the years for all your excellent post.

So, with no fixed address, no income and a postcard and blogging habit to sustain, what's next?

I've set up our new travelling and postcard blog at www.postcardsfrom.us and will be selling postcards from us from wherever we go in the world! Get yourself over there and pick up a postcard from wherever in the world we are now!

my REAL wall photobooth edition


I met an old university friend this weekend who I haven't seen for a few years and we went out to the South Bank to catch up on old times.

I knew I had some postcards to put up on my REAL wall, so they came with me, and we went to the Festival of the World exhibition, which was running at the Royal Festival Hall.

They have a really cool little machine there, like a retro 4 photograph passport photo machine, but inside it's got a digital camera and it prints the 4 photos really quickly.

Anyway, they have this machine and a wall with plastic photo pockets, where people would put their photos after they were taken. The machine is free to use and the wall is rammed with photos, it's great.

I realised that we could make an artwork within an artwork with this, so me and Dave grabbed your post and sat in the machine passing post to each other to make this one - it was great fun!

Can you spot yours on here?

REAL to Real


Earlier this week I heard about a new social network that really tickled me. Called Real, the physical network, this new social network can be found at www.welcometoreal.com.

So what makes it different from other social networks, you may be wondering. Well Real is a project sponsored by Royal Mail which gives a select few people some wall space in a premium location in London. All that the people have to do is send in Real part to fill that wall space.

It's a real wall to be filled with real post. Sound familiar?

Anyway, i'm not bitter, even about the bit where they say they're the first social network as I applaud any effort to connect people, especially using post, and i'm throwing my full story behind the project.

I've been given a plot to fill, plot 45, and the lovely full at Real have sent me a welcome pack, complete with lots odd awesome pre-paid envelopes. I have some ideas and will probably ask for your help to full my plot, so watch this space!

I'll get started on my first pieces for the plot tonight. In the meantime, I decided to take all the part out into the real world, so here is the contents of my inbox on the tube between Hammersmith and Goldhawk Road. I think it all looks very happy there.

if you want to help new full btu plot and show London what postal social networking is really all about, drop me a line!
