A year ago I posted about PostSecret, a remarkable ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard. Since it started in 2004, people from around the world have had their most excruciating secrets appear anonymously on the popular website has won several awards, attracts many millions of visits per year, and has now gone international (German, French, Spanish, Korean). To date, its founder Frank Warren has received hundreds of thousands of secret-bearing postcards (joyful, poignant, sad, passive aggressive, you name it…) and has published four books featuring the cards. View an online selection of the cards here. Watch short videos by/about PostSecret here and here.
