Write On! revives the lost art of written correspondence, and “spreads some positivity one postcard at a time.” A renovated delivery truck travels across the U.S. stopping at outdoor venues where it opens up into a display and interaction space. Participants write on a screenprinted postcard of their choice, sitting on modified packing boxes. The cards are collected, temporarily displayed and then mailed by the Write On! staff. This student team tested out Write On! for real—in simplified form—on campus and around Seattle, and met with great success. Developed in Kristine Matthews’ Exhibition Design course at the University of Washington, where student teams design installations to create a change they would like to see in the world.
