06.2022 - present

Contra - antithesis, to understand our lives in a changing world requires a documentation of the many contradictions that we simultaneously hold as true; Our own cognitive dissonance. These artist postcards feature poetry and photography from Architect Derek Russell, from his many travels through the Americas - documenting iconic landscapes that are slowly fading. These postcards subvert the vicarious tropes of exoticism found in traditional souvenirs. Instead, (Contra)Postcards offer a new snapshot of a place, complete with quizzical statements and moral quandaries. Display these artworks on your bookshelf or contribute in the global capitalist network and send messages to your loved ones - an inscribed message in a bottle, sharing stories in order to race extinction.
