Call for Submissions: The Great Postcard Skyline Project

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

By Rachael Greenberg

We love an odd, passionate personal media project around here. This week, we’ve found a site that reaches across the web into the real world, specifically the world of postcards—a project that just might change the way college dorm rooms are decorated (sayonara Pulp Fiction poster).

Inspired by her love of postcards, Harvard sophomore Clara Y. has launched The Great Postcard Skyline Project. Her objective? To create a sprawling urban skyline against her dorm room wall. Her architectural medium? Postcards from different locations, common and obscure, sent from both the U.S. and abroad. Check out her list to see what spots on the map she’s missing (we know you’re out there Mississippi!)—Clara welcomes your contributions to her well-traveled skyline. If you do have a postcard to add, she lists her mailing address on her site, so you can send it the old-fashioned way.
