Post Secret

Post Secret
-Ongoing commnity mail art project
-Created by Frank Warren
-People mail in their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard.
-Select secrets are then posted on the PostSecret website or are used for PostSecret's books or museum exhibits


History
-The concept of the project was that completely anonymous people decorate a postcard and tell a secret never told before. No restrictions on it, the only one is that it must be completely truthful. It can be anything, no one gets judged. Entries can go in all kinds of directions, from admissions of sexual misconduct, criminal activity and confessions of secret desires to embarassing habits, hopes and dreams. The secrets are meant to be empowering both to the author and those who read them. The site creates a place where you can feel accepted









-This originally started on the blogging site Blogspot and is updated every Sunday with 10 new secrets. But then, it began posting 20 secrets every Sunday.







-In April 2008, they teamed up with 1-800-suicide to answer some of these suicide calls
-The idea of sharing secrets while still staying anonymous gives people the chance to say anything without their identities being revealed.

I also did this as a final for my Art 100 class. You may know this already since I did a post on it. I have a secret that I'm so deathly afraid to say. So, ok here it is: I wish I was the same age as Mick Jagger so I could marry him!!! This was my main secret, it had quite a few pics of Mick on it, saying I wish I was the same age he is so I could marry him and just hug him!!!



Another thing that's not really a secret, but more of a random thought is that for some reason, I find Asian, Italian and British guys to be really sexy!!!!
 
Hiroyuki Sanada

Ken Watanabe

Dominic Rowan as Jacob Thorne on Law and Order:UK. IDK what it is about British guys that is so sexy, but there is obviously something sexy about them!!

 
Stevie Van Zandt
 
Jamie Bamber as Matt Devlin on Law and Order:UK
 
Sylvester Stallone
