The Sample Project


Dear interested,


The world we live in is composed of innumerable locations, but the places which are important to us are finite. What does it mean when parts of those important places are removed and sent away to another?

This is where you come in! Send me a small part of a place which is close to your heart, and in exchange you will receive a part of a place which is close to mine. It’s that simple! This can be a small handful of earth from your backyard, a piece of asphalt from your childhood playground, a leaf on that special tree, or a bit of water in the river that runs through your town. You are welcome to make as many submissions as you feel necessary.

Please address all deliveries to:

The Sample Project

1706 ½ Washington St.

Eugene Or, 97401

Samples should be able to fit within a standard letter envelope and abide by U.S. Postal Service rules and regulations.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this project you may contact me directly through my contact page and I will be sure to answer as thoroughly as I am able. Please share this with anyone you think might be interested in supporting this project through the share buttons below. This project will be taking submissions as long as this page is up.

Thank you for your interest and participation in The Sample Project! I look forward to receiving a small part of your important place!
