POST HACK or How To Send A Letter For Free:
A letter is a message written with a pen on a piece of paper (dead tree) which gets delivered in its physical original form[!!] to the recipients physical home address (house in a city i.e.). Wow, pretty cool concept, no?
- Materials: Paper (blank paper is ususally almost impossible to find but if you’re lucky there might be some sheets left in a printer near by), Pen (just ask your friend or cubical neighbor for a pen to borrow. I recommend to keep it after writing the letter, you might need it again later…)
- Write a letter (ask your friend for a FB like or something…) and fold the paper to an envelope (see video)
- Adress!: Now the important part! On the envelope
swapp the names of sender and recipient!put the real recipient in the field of the sender and make up a non existing address for the official recipient field.
- NO STAMP!! Send it off and wait for the letter to ‘return’ to the ‘sender’.
How does it work? The postal service will try to deliver the letter to the recipients home. Due to wrong address it will fail and the letter will ‘go back’ to ‘the sender’ which is the real recipient. In my first try below I just swapped sender and receiver which led to a visit at the post office in Berlin where I had to reject my own letter to make it ‘go back’ to ‘the sender’ in Berlin.
Since I put my real address as recipient the Deutsche Post did send me a note (another piece of paper!) to my Berlin address to let me know they have a letter for me. They also announced it’s gonna cost extra money because the sender was so stupid to put no stamp.
So I went to the Post office on Torstrasse in Berlin and told the clerk that I don t know the sender and that I m not gonna pay 62 cents + 51 cents fine for this strange piece of paper. No problem she said and filed it away…
Finally!! Yesterday on Sunday (prolly on Saturday, five days later) the letter arrived at Constants place in Berlin. Thanks for the tweet! :) https://twitter.com/constantdull/status/657978567381397504 Love it! What a beautiful envelope with all these extra notes and stamps on it.
‘Home Entertainment’ Aram Bartholl. 2012, 31 mins. video DVD.
DVD Dead Drop vol.4 at the Museum of Moving Image, NYC
December 7, 2012–January 31, 2013
“The reign of the DVD is over, and with it the era of the extra. Before home entertainment was streamed from the cloud, movies came on DVDs that contained more than just the featured attraction. Studios added bonus content like behind-the-scenes documentaries and audio commentaries to make DVDs more desirable to consumers.
But DVDs also came with undesirable extras that were universally frustrating to captive audiences waiting for their movie to begin: unskippable content. Trailers for upcoming movies, promotional spots, and other unwanted clips all found their way immovably in front of featured attractions.
Home Entertainment is a collection of media found on DVDs from around the world that you always wanted to skip, but couldn’t: international copyright warnings, home entertainment publisher logos, studio and distributor bumpers, anti-piracy propaganda, and more. This time, however, all the clips are chaptered, so you can finally skip them.”
If you manage to watch the whole thing in one go without skipping i buy you a beer! ;)
