Unidentified Flying Opus

Burst the balloon: Conceptual artist Jordan Johnson ties helium balloons to signed and numbered pages so that they fly away when he is finished typing them. Happening today, 3 September in (where else?) Brooklyn, NY.

LETTERS TAKE FLIGHT By Jordan Johnson.

LETTERS TAKE FLIGHT
By Jordan Johnson.

Well, with the price of stamps these days, will not be surprised if this catches on all over the typosphere !

Johnson will be launching his missives today at the Marathon of Speeches in Brooklyn. This Brooklyn Paper article has a bit more–er, except the time. Have resolved to: 1) Shamelessly borrow this idea for the October Type-IN;  2) Type and send a quick letter using a similar method and slightly different medium of travel. More on that in the next post.
