Where I live is a group of flats on top of high street shops, we are 3 house numbers and share the same entrance. For this reason, a lot letters and all type of correspondence gets to our common entrance hall. There is a shelf where the correspondences can be organised and stored, but recently it has been a total mess.

London is a city that is always changing, people move in and out very frequently and not always update their addresses. This is the case here, we receive letters of people who moved out (of the country even) and this contributes to the mess of correspondence combined with lazy residents who never pick up their letters downstairs.

No one seems to care about it here, the number of flyers, letters, magazines, etc, is increasing and I find difficulty to find my correspondence there. Tired of this I decided to take an attitude to change that. On this video I show the quantity of letters, and separate them in relation to the flat’s numbers and left the pack of correspondence at people’s doors.

I hope that this way, they are somehow forced to see how many letters they left behind, and do something about them, either if it is theirs or of previous residents.

Can you believe that one of my neighbours opens his letter to see the content and leaves it open on the shelf downstairs?

I found around 5 letters for us lost in that mess.
