Inspired by the frivolous handling of packages sent through the postal system, these are aluminium canvases to be sculpted by the mail service. They are available on our webshop.
Upon ordering, we wrap and deliver the becoming artwork to our local post office in Oslo, Norway, where the rough journey ahead begins.
As every sheet is handled differently in the mail, each Post Post is unique. We don't have any control over how roughly the package is treated, so it might come out really crumbled or just slightly dented.
We've made a limited edition of 111 pieces, and each comes with a signed and numbered certificate.
Stickers were made to agitate postmen on duty.
Extensive testing was done to ensure right amount of deformation. Check out some process pics.
Different material thickness, surface and pattern geometry were some parameters. The iterations were sent from Oslo / Norway to friends and relatives in Berlin / Germany, Newcastle / Australia, and New York / USA
Thanks to Hans Alexander, Christopher and Martin Spencer!
We also have a designated blog where the results can be showcased.
