Participation

When "The Lucerne Project" was exhibited at Finestra Art Space, Chicago, in October-November 2011, visitors to the gallery were asked to write a message to someone in Lucerne, Switzerland, on a specially printed postcard.

The front of the postcard has an aerial photo of Chicago, and the phrase "Greetings from Chicago!" in four languages. On the back of the postcard, there is space to fix a mailing label, selected from a list of publicly-available names in the Lucerne telephone directory, and to write a message to your chosen person.

When the exhibition ended, I mailed all of the postcards to Switzerland. When the recipient in Lucerne replies, I will publish their return messages here.
