vol 4 / nr 26 / Stuttgart, Germany (-> Singapore)

Nicole is a 20 year old student from Singapore, who is currently on an overseas exchange program in Stuttgart. She found the print at a flea market in Berlin one April weekend.

The envelope was nestled among some vinyl-covered notebooks, and I almost missed it. I'm glad i didn't though; 'the fragrance of skies' is lovely, as is your project. I will be keeping it as one of my favourite memories of Berlin, and as a reminder to myself to believe in the good of human beings, Nicole wrote.

vol 4 / nr 24 / Tromsö, Norway

Simon found the print while being on easter-holiday in Berlin: Skipping through the bookshop of the Gemäldegalerie, I found the mysterious envelop and decided to find out what it was about. I was positively surprised and regard myself lucky to be rewarded with your print. It reminded me of the cold war days where West-Berlin was an island isolated by the wall - underneath an undivided sky. Now the print has found its new home on the wall of his livingroom in the North of Norway.

vol 4 / nr 85 / Berlin, Germany

Daniela is an Italian illustrator, who has lived in Berlin for three years. She wrote to me: I found your print "The Fragrance of Skies" at Modulor, a big shop for artist materials. I would say only: thank you :) Your project is amazing, I really like your work.

vol 4 / nr 65 / St. Petersburg, Russia

Yulia found the envelope the other day at Boesner between a book on Botticelli. She's going to take the print back with her to St. Petersburg.

vol 4 / nr 22 / Berlin, Germany

Linda was having just a normal day: I was with my boyfriend and was about to meet my cousin right around the corner from modulor (art supply store). We had some time left before we met my cousin, so we decided to just pass our time in modulor. Some art book catched my attention and I just looked through it and I found an envelope with a catchy note on it: to you whoever you are. At first she thought it was belonging to the book, but soon she realized it wasn't.

Linda writes: For some reason I was really happy and this small present really made my day. What is really funny is, that I study communication design and just a few hours before I had this one course called behavior pattern. My task for this semester is to analyze behavior patterns in society, and this art project really brought me to another point of view on things, especially on my view about how people react and obviously like me can be really happy small things in life!
