messages, carriers

Volkspost is a free postal system using the journeys of friends and strangers to deliver messages throughout the world. These slow physical messages operate in contrast to tweets and email, bypassing corporate datacenters but also allowing themselves to be delayed or destroyed by chance. By avoiding commercial postal systems, the project circumvents potential censorship and attempts to establish a fallible human delivery system. In this participatory incarnation, messages are sent from Berlin to Sydney using a series of carriers.
