P.O.S.T. - People Organized for Spontaneous Transfers


PeopleOrganized at gmx.de

Associate project of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale

Project runs from from September 23rd to October 9th 2013


P.O.S.T. - People Organized for Spontaneous Transfers is looking for 
people who want to join an experimental game between Lisbon and 
Marseille. You do not have to live in one of the cities to 

The history of message-delivery is the history of man trying to 
overcome distance to the others, sharing his ideas in order to create 
a symbolic world that helps him to transcend solitude. Until recent 
centuries, the only way to increase the speed of communication has 
been to improve the speed of the messenger. Nowadays, our current 
technologies allows us to reduce the equation time/distance, so that 
we receive instant messages and information from all around the 
world. However, as Franco (Bifo) Berardi remarks, this acceleration 
reduce our capacity to feel empathy because the time available to 
respond to the constant stimulus is too short.

P.O.S.T. aims to explore the interpersonal ties needed to create 
alternative ways of data transfer beyond the regular ones. For this 
purpose, we would like to build a network of people that supports in 
different ways the message delivery between Lisbon and Marseille from 
September 23rd to October 9th 2013. This network fosters personal 
encounters and is based on trust, good intentions and reliability.

If you live in Lisbon or Marseille, you can become 'sender-recipient' 
or 'network'. The first means that you decide about the message 
content and/or you are addressed by it. To become 'network' means 
that you are a fundamental part of the process: you support the 
message delivering in some way within your everyday life. You can 
also suggest strategies for transferring information.
