Grand Rapids Round Table

Veronica Kirin's avatar Veronica Kirin

The idea behind the piece is to facilitate anonymous community interaction and interest in each other. Through the eight mailboxes, each labeled with a different human condition/emotion, community members can either leave a message for someone in need of encouragement, or take one from the appropriate mailbox. The messages will be digitized every night to be simultaneously projected to the city. This installment is created to withstand the elements over the course of many years, rather than just one month. This not only gives participants the sentiment that their experience is, in fact, a legacy, but allows the piece to be considered a permanent installment should it be so lucky. It will work best in a highly trafficked and easily accessible area where wandering minds are close at hand.
