The Number You Are Trying To Reach

The Number You Are Trying To Reach is a book chronicling a 5 months of slow communication and accompanying book of postcards. The goal of the project was to foster slow communication and to give people something to hold on to—written word rather than a collection of code.  Following a non-linear format, the book organizes the messy nature of friendship, community, and small moments of joy into a tale that slowly builds through time. Interspersed amongst interviews with friends and letters from strangers are letters from the past, once lost in the mail system.
