INKIII: Send Limited Edition Art Free of Charge
The newly launched INKIII website allows anyone around the world to customize and send a postcard featuring an emerging contemporary artist, free of charge, to anyone of their choosing. Each featured work will be reproduced by INKIII in Italy as a limited-edition print, and the back will include a brief artist's statement as well as the sender's message for the recipient.
"For Inkiii, I wanted to go back to the origins of postcards... I wanted to create a whole new landscape, bodies and earth intertwined on the same level," explains inaugural INKIII artist Janna Yotte.
The INKIII project draws upon the legacies of mail art, but in the age of the Internet. Mail art originally enabled artists to produce and send works of art outside of a conventional gallery setting. Artists drew on existing images, collaged photographs together, included stamps as a part of compositions, and saw the mailing process as an integral part of the work. INKIII similarly aims to harness the communicative potential of physical mail to disseminate art. The project blends the new opportunities of the digital while recognizing the value of physically experiencing works of art.

INKIII founders Christina Wollesen, Marina Dumont and Brittany Myburgh met at the University of Toronto where Christina holds an MA in philosophy and Brittany and Marina are PhD candidates in the Art History program. They share a common interest in the intersections of art and technology, and creating opportunities for increased access to art.
INKIII cards are printed in Italy on 100% recycled and carbon neutral paper that is recyclable, biodegradable and FSC™ certified.
