The final collection of works will be brought together in Pop (Popular)

London, UK in Spring 2009.
Pop Samiti art paper is an experimental open platform for people with an

not require much of your time we ask that your commitment in sending the
postcards be acted upon to keep with the fluidity of the project as it
travels around the world.
