We did a creative take on the theme, "past", by creating an application which emulates the mail of the past. This application functions as a fully-featured mail system with the twist that any message that is sent is delayed for a number of days proportional to the distance between the sender and the recipient.

Attached is an azimuthal equidistant projection of the UnitedSstates, centered on Lexington, Massachusetts. The purple circles connect places that mail from Lexington would take equal time to travel to.
