{ images/ mysterious letters }

i just love when i come across beautiful stories… the letters above are a handful of those sent by lenka clayton and michael crowe – one to each person in a village in ireland and all of which were complete strangers to them. here’s what they said about their project:

“In April 2009, we sent a personal, handwritten letter to each of the 467 households in the small Irish village of Cushendall. We hoped these unsolicited letters would prompt neighbourly discussion, spreading across the town, promoting community curiosity.

The art work consists solely of the discussion between the recipients about what on Earth these letters are, who sent them and why, etc.”

i hope that every person in this village knows just how lucky they are! click here to view all 467 letters

p.s. it’s september and i couldn’t be happier about that!
