Asia Wong's 300 Letters project is a time-consuming, creative and incredibly random way to create intimacy in modern society. Imagine writing and addressing 300 real love letters to people you actually know, and then attaching these love letters to the outside of envelopes addressed to a stranger.

That's exactly what Wong did for her 300 Letters Project. She actually wrote 400 separate notes, penning letter after letter to family members, friends, people met during chance encounters and to her secret crushes.

On the 300 Letters project website, Wong classifies each scanned letter with a color to help denote their subject. In some of Wong's more personal letters, this glimpse into such purely expressed intimacy feels voyeuristic. Stats for Random Mail Intimacy Trending: Older & Mild
