Notes of Note

What would you do if one not-so-out-of-the-ordinary day, you received the following letter at your door:

“Dear all,
I told Alfred that the Batmobile was more important than him.
With superb timing,
Lenka and Michael.”

Two weeks past, I received a similarly puzzling letter, ambiguously addressed to all the inhabitants of my apartment. A brief conversation with my downstairs neighbor failed to turn up any explanation for strange note. I returned to my apartment baffled.

The next day, a friend from the neighborhood clued me into the mysterious letter’s origins. It turns out that the letter I received was part of an art project organized by artists Lenka Clayton and Michael Crowe. The project is designed to foster communication within communities, and the artists aspire to some day write a letter to everyone in the world. Neat idea, huh?

You can look at all the letters and find out more information here.

    Thats so cute! Its really cool that they’re pursuing that, too. Like i s’pse that if your only 6 handshakes away from meeting someone in relation to you or a famous historian or even Walt Disney’s best friends great nephew or something, why not send a letter to everybody? Thats major wishful thinking. 🙂
