The Red Mailbox Project is a simple idea I came up with to spread art and joy in my community (Daegu, South Korea). Last October, I built a small mailbox and planted it a few blocks away from my home in Daegu, South Korea. Inside the mailbox, I left a small painting of a monster and a note that said, “Please take this and keep it. There will be another gift tomorrow waiting in the box.”
I have handmade 101 clay pots with the faces of different poets from around the world on them. I am leaving the pots, along with poems by those poets around the city for people to discover, read, and take home with them.
