A SIMPLE GESTURE, A JOURNEY, A MEETING PLACE. ~by david horvitz



PLEASE MAIL ME AN EMPTY ENVELOPE.

PLEASE WRITE YOUR NAME ON THE BACK OF THE ENVELOPE AND THE PLACE IT IS BEING MAILED FROM.

THIS IS ABOUT A CONVERGENCE.

THIS IS ABOUT A MEETING PLACE.

THIS IS ABOUT A DISTANCE.

I WANT YOU TO SEND ME NOTHING BECAUSE I THINK THAT WOULD BE POETIC. AND, IF YOU SEND ME NOTHING IT DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING EXCEPT A DISTANCE. ALL IT IS IS THE GAP FROM YOU TO ME, AND THE BRIDGING OF THAT GAP. THE ENVELOPE WILL HAVE CONNECTED TWO POINTS. AT ITS POINT OF ARRIVAL IT WILL HAVE ARRIVED WITH OTHERS WHO HAVE JOURNEYED TO THE SAME DESTINATION FROM DIFFERENT POINTS OF DEPARTURE. THAT IS WHY THIS IS ALSO A MEETING PLACE.

DAVID HORVITZ
99 VERNON AVE #1
BROOKLYN, NY 11206



IDEALLY, I WISH TO BUY A REALLY BIG PO BOX AT A POST OFFICE IN NEW YORK. I WOULD NEVER TAKE THE ENVELOPES OUT. I WOULD LEAVE THEM IN THERE. THEY WOULD PILE UP AND STAY AT THEIR MEETING PLACE FOR YEARS AND YEARS. I WOULD LET PEOPLE BORROW THE KEY SO THEY COULD LOOK AT THEM. BIG PO BOXES COST $326 FOR 6 MONTHS. I CAN'T AFFORD THAT RIGHT NOW. SO, FOR NOW, THEY WILL JUST MEET AT MY HOUSE AND I WILL KEEP THEM IN A SHOE BOX. WHEN I GET THE MONEY, I WILL FIND A PERMANENT MEETING PLACE. ONCE THAT HAPPENS, YOU WILL HAVE TO SEND ANOTHER ENVELOPE TO THERE! SO PLEASE COME BACK TO THIS PAGE, ONCE I FIND THE FUNDS THE PO BOX WILL BE BOUGHT RIGHT AWAY AND THE ADDRESS WILL BE POSTED HERE.


i found out about david horvitz through raul at heading east. his "things for sale that i will mail you" project asks readers to send specific amounts of money so that he can spend it doing specific and rather fleeting tasks. such as this one:

"If you give me $75 I will go see a psychic and ask them for advice on my life. I will send you a write up of what happened and documentary photographs. If you give me $1,689 I will go see a psychic, ask them where in the whole world I should go to, and then I will go there. I will mail you documentation of this from where ever it is I go to. If you give me $9,999 I will go see a psychic and ask them where I SHOULD NOT go to in the whole world. I will then go there and mail you documentation of it from there. (note: I took out the tape recording part because I have found that some don't like to have their sessions recorded)

For each purchase I will go to different psychics."
