I came across an entirely new medium of community art: PostSecret. It uses as a canvas, a material least imagined to be used as such: a postcard. That a single 4″ x 6″ piece of card could be so expressive is unbelievable.
Of course, it is the artist’s feelings that make it unique, and I think that’s the whole point of this collection — a single artist could probably not come up with such a myriad assortment of emotions on postcard. But an entire community, for each of whom to err is human, brings out their deepest secrets this way.
I would love to buy a printed collection of these if it ever comes out … Go check it out. But only if you have a few hours at hand. It is truly captivating.
