About This Project

The Future Mailbox is a project I have been working on for the since 2014. Over time it’s gone through many physical transformations (it started as a shoebox!), yet the idea remains the same. It’s simple in its interaction. A participant writes a letter to their Future Self, addresses it, and sends it off into the void of time. When I decide the time is right, let that be 1 month, 2 years, 5 days, I send it off for them to receive their message. I have been told by many participants that it is a very impactful and engaging experience. The Future Mailbox can shapeshift to fit into any new environment and is willing to travel through space and time to arrive be at any event or gathering. We’ve been thankful to be involved at Invisible City, Holocene’s 2019 NYE party, and FORM festival 2019.
