Distance as Object

+ Postcard
+ Envelopes
+ Global postal service

Starting of as an experiment in interpersonal communication across the 52nd parallell, Distance as Object encountered opposition at the Polish border when the unlawful invasion of Ukraine by Russia resulted in a halt of all postal communications towards Russia. The postcard, traveling along the same latitutde line from Utrecht to Berlin, Warsaw, Atka, Saskatoon, and Limerick, hence had to skip its port in Irkutsk. The absence of the Russian stamp is a stark indicator of the postcard’s proximity to war.
