DELIVERY FOR MR. ASSANGE
A LIVE MAIL ART PIECE
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRADICAL REALTIME

!Mediengruppe Bitnik (2013)

A parcel containing a camera is sent to Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian 
embassy in London through the Royal Mail. Through a hole in the parcel, 
the camera documents its journey through the postal system. The images 
are transfered to this website, where the status of the parcel can be 
followed in realtime.

!Mediengruppe Bitnik will post the parcel around noon on Wednesday, 16 
January 2013. The parcel is due to arrive at its destination within 24 
hours. Should the first parcel fail to reach Julian Assange, a second 
and third parcel will follow within the next few days.

We want to see where the parcel will end up. Will it reach its 
destination? Which route will it take?

The parcel is a REAL_WORLD_PING, a SYSTEM_TEST, inserted into a highly 
tense diplomatic crisis. Julian Assange has been living at the 
Ecuadorian embassy in London since June 2012. Although he was granted 
political asylum by Ecuador in August 2012, he is unable to leave the 
embassy premises for fear of being arrested by UK authorities.
