mail art call/Jennie Kosharek

UTOPIA/DYSTOPIA
Please create a mini flux box. I would like to see your utopia and/or dystopia in a box or tin. It can be like a diorama or a flux-kit--however you like to work... or find your own style and way to express an idea. Nothing bigger than a cigar box please. Show will be summer of 2011. Send to :
UTOPIA/DYSTOPIA
c/o Jennifer Kosharek
665 Jasmine Way South
St. Petersburg, FL 33705
All work will be included in the show. Work deadline is June 1, 2011.

Some food for thought gleaned from Wikipedia:
Utopia (pronounced /juːˈtoʊpiə/) is a name for an ideal community or society possessing a perfect socio-politico-legal system.[1] The word was invented by Sir Thomas More for his 1516 book Utopia, describing a fictional island in the Atlantic Ocean. The term has been used to describe both intentional communities that attempted to create an ideal society, and fictional societies portrayed in literature.
A dystopia (from Ancient Greek: δυσ-: bad-, ill- and Ancient Greek: τόπος: place, landscape) (alternatively, cacotopia,[1] or anti-utopia) is, in literature, an often futuristic society that has degraded into a repressive and controlled state, often under the guise of being utopian. Dystopian literature has underlying cautionary tones, warning society that if we continue to live how we do, this will be the consequence. A dystopia is, thus, regarded as a sort of negative utopia and is often characterized by an authoritarian or totalitarian form of government. Dystopias usually feature different kinds of repressive social control systems, a lack or total absence of individual freedoms and expressions and constant states of warfare or violence. Dystopias often explore the concept of technology going "too far" and how humans individually and en masse use technology. A dystopian society is also often characterized by mass poverty for most of its inhabitants and a large military-like police force.
