We've been fans of Ace Hotel for awhile now, but today we fell even more in love after we received the best mail ever. No, really...ever. Ace has created the VISUAL CHAIN LETTER in hopes to bring people closer to both, each other and the world around us. Being big advocates of "exploring the world" idea, this little package in the mailbox definitely put a smile on our face. Here's how it read:We all have a lot of things, but we don't really get enough of each other. In the spirit of all we deem holy - communion, gratitude, wildness, bravery, playfulness drama, psychic sustenance and all that which can be made and done with the human hand - please do us the honor of exploring your world with this small camera, and sending it back when your're done. We'll send you back a chain letter of sorts, containing images selected just for you from the camera's we've sent to other friends. It'll be a good way for you to meet - arguably better than an email, we think. It seems like the world is getting faster and sweeter and funner and shakier. And it's good to remember we can all still show one another what makes our worlds turn, what inspires us to work hard every day, what moves us to tears and quakes our homes with good, solid laughter. What we think no one else sees, what makes us feel foolishly human and unreasonably superhuman and childish and feral. The details and magnifying glasses and rose-colored lenses and black clouds and stark truths of your world. We can think of nothing less disposable. With the help of one of our favorite American institutions, the endagered United States Postal Service, we thank you for sharing your energy, time and spirit with us, and each other, for nuturing new tribes and new traditions. You're what keeps kickin'. Have an incredible new year. We'll keep an eye on the mailbox. X Ace Let the snapshots begin...but tell us people...where should we shoot? What are some of your favorite spots? We want your advice, we want you a part of this, we want this to be a collaboration! Comment below!
