GREETINGS FROM NEW ORLEANS: An Experiment in Found Art

Greetings from New Orleans: An Experiment in Found Art

So, I get an email from my graduate advisor from Cincinnati this morning with a link to this site, and asking me if we're the Balcony Revelers. We most certainly are. As it turns out, my advisor's son, completed this postcard art project a few weeks prior to Katrina with the intent of showing it in New Orleans, where he was located. The project itself is great. He took the wonderful photos, made them into postcards, wrote fictitious messages, stamped them and finally "lost" them throughout the city. They all had Ohio addresses where he would be able to retrieve them. He received 47 of the 99 lost cards.
