#TheWorldLetter Project originally started as a one-time street installation in May of 2017 as a Love Letter to the World. But then something interesting happened. The World began to write a Love Letter to the World. And so it continues on most days in Washington Square Park, weather permitting.
We caught up with the creator of #TheWorldLetter, artist Cocovan on a recent sunny day, where she was surrounded by tourists and locals, NYU students and retiree’s ~ all of them had something to say by way of drawings, symbols, a few words, and real letters.
So far, the love letter has hit the streets of Paris, New York, Montréal, Miami and 89 other Countries. #TheWorldLetter has collected more than 7,012 ‘letters’ and has grown to more than 400 feet. In the end, #TheWorldLetter will be digitized, exhibited, and read in organized reading sessions. Your words count.
