It really struck me when I saw this work I have no idea what Facebook do. There must be a whole host of things happening behind that blue and white wall we don’t know about, and if they’re all like this project then I really want to see more.
This 2009 holiday gift by Ben Barry was sent to Facebook’s friends and clients as a thank you. And some thank you it was. Each recipient is sent a Facebook theme art print, plus unique redeemable wooden token for the cause of their choice. The idea for this print is about human connections around the world, the middle being made of a continuous, unbroken line.
The spec is just silly on this one; 4000 pieces, all postal tubes hand stamped, 2.5″ silk screened and cnc machined plywood tokens with digitally printed unique codes, custom print wrapping paper and tape, 1 colour 19×19″ print, embossed and foil stamped, postcard and token holder 1 colour with clear theromography print. Serious.
