Conviviendo con cuarenta emails que alguna vez envié
Title Translation: Living With Forty Emails That I Sent
I want to start a revolution, letter by letter.
By Paloma Sky
I don't remember the exact moment when it all started.
Actually, now I see it.
I wasn’t in control of any of the construction of this beautiful and ambitious plan.
Calling it a plan because you need to think what’s the next step, always.
I’ve been sending e-mails mostly to Artists.
Basically I send them an intuitive message, and with it, goes an action for them to do.
Started by sending e-mails, and now, I am sending the actual handwritten letter.
It’s been a two year journey so far.
The fact that artists are those who approach me, adds a little touch of randomness and makes me realize that I can’t control where it goes. I have the vision, but I don’t choose who decides to join me, and honestly, that’s the most fun part.
I take art as a big part of my life. I've been doing different disciplines at different stages.
Went through painting, video art, and performance. I don't limit myself to just one.
But when I take a specific direction, I use to dedicate my time to one single discipline until I see that the work is finished.
With letters and e-mails, I try to connect with people in a deep way.
And nowadays, the concept of e-mail or letter has become almost strictly a selling/promoting/notifying tool.
Imagine someone ringing the doorbell.
You are excited when the postman gives you an envelope.
You open it, and there is a text made for your soul.
And that that moment has changed your life forever.
I strongly believe that small gestures, and common places, transformed into revolutionary places, could change the whole game.
