10 years of boxes and envelopes Mail-art call

10 years of Boxes and Envelopes
A collective and continual time capsule project

Within a box, envelope or other container place any item or items that you wish to include as a personal time capsule. This may come in the form of a letter, a drawing, photo or object. You may wish to include something that is significant or symbolic of who you are at this time, or the way you perceive the world around you. What you place in your time capsule is completely up to you (please do not include any organic material as customs may confiscate theme).

- Seal your vessel.
- Label the outside of your container with the project title, your name (or alias), and the date it was sealed
- Send to:

neRRaDa.
PO Box 15
Arana Hills
Qld 4054
Australia.

Each capsule will remain sealed until the project concludes on September 1st 2019 (all work received before this date will be included in the exhibition). On this day the Grand Opening will occur (location and times to be decided at a later date). At the grand opening visitors will be invited to open the capsules, the contents will be documented and exhibited (locally and on-line). All participants will receive an official certificate of participation, project sticker and post card once your capsule has been received. Please feel free to design and decorate your capsule as you please, upon being received they will be photographed and documented progressively at

Thanks so much... I have two contributers so far and am looking forward to slowly building up a secret archive that will pass through time and then finally be revealed... who knows where we will be be or what the work we do now may mean to us or others ten years from now. The big problem is resisting the desire to peek inside the capsules and glance at the secrets inside... I must be strong.
