A zine of letter from the Letterbox Dublin project. Handprinted cover. Handsown binding.
I founded the Letterbox Dublin project in 2008. I put a letterbox up in Dame Lane as a piece of interactive street art. I placed different themes on the box and collected an archive of letters from people who choose to interact with the project between 2008-2015. I was writing my thesis on street art when I started the project, and was experimenting with placing art in a public setting so that members of the public would find it unexpectedly in their everyday life and add positively to their experience of my city. I have exhibited the letters in galleries, publications and on billboards around the city -bringing the letters back to the streets where they came from. I was interviewed about the project on Sky Atlantic tv show Urban Secrets. The letters were exhibted at Science Gallery Dublin as part of their Secrets exhibition, where I also did an artist talk about the project. Letterbox Dublin has been featured in Dublin guidebook Secret Dublin: An Unusual Guide by Pól Ó Conghaile and has been featured in many online publications.
