I followed a breadcrumb trail via Twitter to the electronic door of Olga Nunes' new album release entitled LAMP. A curious circumstance surrounds its creation which speaks directly to my set of obsessions- namely secrets, ephemera and love of letters. As part of the concept, Olga is soliciting letters:
"The story of Lamp and Lux doesn't exist without you. Their story has been woven together from love letters and ephemera that you've sent in. Email your letters, one's you've received or written, to be part of LAMP. (Don't worry, It can be made anonymous upon request.) Don't have one? Write a letter to someone you love, and email it to [email protected] "
There's also a message in a bottle to be found and deciphered if you live in San Francisco. (All the best crazy mail stuff happens in San Francisco.) You can find out more by following @letterislost on Twitter and perhaps over at this website.
Please excuse me while I go write a bunch of love letters,
P.S. We have a Twitter too! @_lwa for updates and postal tidbits. It's like an electronic postcard from us to you.
