Random Postcard Project

This really needs to happen when I’ve got 5 minutes. Maybe for a speed thing? Spend only a day! For a break!

The Random Project 2012 will showcase a growing collection of postcards which are created by everybody. These will celebrate the spirit of London 2012 and enable us to visually document the shared cultural experience as the year unfolds – we will all become the artists-in-residence for a historic year.

The project is open to everybody to take part in; from artists to school children to atheletes. Each postcard is designed in response to a randomly assigned word relating to either 2012, London or the Olympics.

To take part please email word@random-project.co.uk with a number between 1 and 100. You will be sent your word along with full instructions. (Be patient, we’ll send your word very soon but we don’t have any clever robots automatically sending them out for us).

Contributors to the project have included my mum, Ed Fella, Stefan Sagmeister, Ralph Steadman, Alan Kitching, Alan Rickman and Isabelle aged 7 to name just a few.

The Random Project 2012 virtual gallery will be open from February 1st 2012 and an exhibition will be planned later in the year.
