How's the weather here there? Postcard Exchange 2020

I invite you to participate in a postcard exchange art project called, "How's the weather here there?" happening all year, 2020.


To participate, describe your current inner and outer landscape (physical space, emotional state, whatever that means to you) on a postcard and mail it to me:


Erin Fussell

P.O. Box 13414

Los Angeles, CA 90013


If you include a return address, I will write back to you describing mine in that particular moment. The project will exhibit in 2021. Addresses redacted for public presentation.


In this time of physical social distancing and COVID-19 impacting us all, the postcard exchange provides an opportunity to connect and takes on even more significance as a record of the year 2020. What a crazy time! I would love to read your reflective note and write one back to you.


I'm occasionally sharing updates on social media using this hashtag #howstheweatherherethere if anyone is interested in seeing some pictures and stories throughout the year. Feel free to share with anyone who might be interested. Here is a little bit more info on my website as well:
