Ivan Cash is a snail mail guy.
The San Francisco and Amsterdam-based artist and graphic designer launched his latest, month-long interactive art project with a simple promise: send him an email and an address and a handwritten note with the same message will be physically mailed anywhere in the world, free of charge.
Cash writes that his project "seeks to both share the warm-fuzzy feeling of receiving a personalized letter as well as inspire people to send their own snail mail ... In a culture overrun with instant gratification and on-demand services, this project cultivates appreciation for the lost art of letter writing."
