During this time of self-isolation, we were yearning for connection and community. In response to this confinement, the Boxcarsix Artist Collective devised a collaborative postcard project embracing the concept of together/apart. With over 60 local artists from Vancouver Island (including myself), they sent out in the world handfuls of postcards, initiated by one artist, open to response by another artist and then sent onto someone else on their list, until it is felt that the postcard was “complete".
The postcards are on display now at The Fifty Fifty Arts Collective.
