polipost is a concept app that addresses the convergence of social media and political expression. Building on the premise of apps that will send physical postcards from uploaded digital images, this app encourages users to communicate visually and textually with their elected representatives about issues that matter to them. For a small fee, users can send a customized postcard to a representative of their choice that bears an image of their own making. Seeking to redirect the energies behind common practices on Facebook and Instagram, polipost is also intended to pose further inquiry into how images communicate, personally and politically.


This prototype was made using Marvel.
