Every so often I run across or get introduced to some really great and interesting art projects here in SF. One of them is the Greetings From Silicon Valley project. The project was introduced to me courtesy of my friend Dorothy Santos who runs a fantastic blog and writes for Zero1, an art and technology collective. The following is a description of the project from the artist, Imin Yeh. Check it out!
Greetings from Silicon Valley (www.GreetingsFromSiliconValley.com) is a series of postcards that hopes to capture an authentic experience of life in Silicon Valley. This will be accomplished by creating an “Open Call” or crowd sourcing from people who play a part in building the Silicon Valley community, targeting employees who work at the famed corporations or schools that create this geographic/commercial boundary.
Utilizing the energy and minds of the individuals who create the technology that is bringing the world together digitally, I hope this project will encourage those individuals to not work for a few minutes and create a physical postcard used to communicate in an analog sort of way.
(The tone of this project is extremely not serious, nor do the resulting cards have to be extremely interesting or compelling. )
I hope you will be interested in participating as well as help spread the call and forward this information to friends and co-workers
Maybe I’ll submit this photo…
Ok, maybe after I get a haircut…
