The Future Postal Service

PART GAME.
PART INTERVENTION.
ONE BIG GAME OF POST.

drop into a hive of postal activity involving big questions, blue hats and random acts of kindness.

The Future Postal Service is a high energy and big thinking mail delivery game, capturing the thoughts of children and delivering them to adult’s eyes.

Like many of Maybe (  ) Together’s works, The Future Postal Service takes children’s voices into public space. Through a simple game of post, children transform an adult-dominated space into their play space.

What Does The World Need To Hear?

A sculpture. A megaphone. A soapbox. A chalkboard.
1 month.
1 question:
What Does The World Need to Hear?

This interactive public sculpture provides passers by with the opportunity to speak out and provide the content. The chalk board grows with rants, aphorisms, quotes, political statements and humorous jokes.

The simple question and accessible nature of the work encourage a diverse range of interactions and a reflection of the community in which it is installed.

This work premiered in Brunswick, Melbourne in September 2013.

During the month documentation and musings were placed on this website.

Concept & facilitation: Alex Desebrock
Chalkboard design: Kathy Holowko & Alex Desebrock

This project was supported through the City of Moreland.

A Little Piece

Enter a very special little show…littlepiece (7)

Harry is a grumpy toy hedgehog that’s flung out of the bedroom and into the world of lost socks, missing teaspoons and strayed keys….

As a metaphor for change in our own lives, whether it’s a redundancy, a relationship breakdown or an eviction notice – these objects, like us, have found strength and happiness in the new.

A Little Piece is for 6 people at a time in a 2x2m little house. As puppeteers manipulate from the outside – audience open cupboard doors to reveal tactile worlds and the next part of the story.

Suitable for children aged 3 and up and their families.

littlepiece (32)Premiered at Melbourne Fringe 2009. Presented at ArtPlay and The Arts Centre in 2010.

Currently available for touring.
