The Post Room Project, Waterford Regional Hospital, Ireland
The Post Room Project -a collaborative community art project with the staff of Waterford Regional Hospital, as part of the WHAT Centre for Arts and Health Artists in Residence programme. It used the hospital postal system as a medium for communication and creative interaction within the community.
The hospital postal system was infiltrated with a series of special internal mail packages, each containing a different story, drawing or artwork. Recipients were invited to contribute something and then post the package on to someone else in the hospital, like a chain letter. Between recipients the package was intercepted in the post room where each new contribution was recorded resulting in a series of short animations that document this unique collaboration.
