  • Delia Rubio is a Madrid based artist.

    We got in touch thanks to a creative experiment with crossing blank journals, in January 2011.
    Last summer, we started exchanging regular mail post.

    It all began with the typical summer postcard sent from a small village close to the see and ended up exchanging DVD's, dried flowers and even some of her beautiful art pieces.

    I have never seen Delia personally, but we plan to meet for the first time next week, at Madrid's Central Post Office.

    There's something magical in exchanging post with somebody else you don't know personally but you have 100% the feeling that this person and you have something in common.

    Cowbird has a bit of this sprit, don't you think?

    I don't know if the traditional postal service will exist in the future. We go forth and faster and day after day, less and less people are used to it.


    "Dear postal service,

    Just in case you don't exist any more in a near future, thanks for bringing me by that:

    1. Waiting for something to happen makes it super exciting.
    2. Intuition is a source of knowledge we should not underestimate.
    3. Physical objects communicate a certain, very special feeling.
    4. Real life it's not perfect, sometimes unpredictable and not always under control.
    5. Love and friendship need some time and dedication.
    6. Surprising somebody it's superb!!

    Sincerely yours,

    Belén "
