Keep posted about Cambridge’s Dinky Doors
A fairy-sized post box has appeared on a Cambridge street – the latest in a series of magical portals to pop up in the city.
Anonymous art collective Dinky Doors has struck again, this time fixing a miniature artwork next to a full-sized post box on Riverside.
It is the fourth in a series of guerilla art installations by the duo, who say they have been asked by an alien 'Supreme Leader' to save the world with their tiny portals.
Dinky Doors said: "The Supreme Leader has been a little bit worried that our communications are not up to scratch and they asked us to come up with a new system.
"We invented the Emailerartor that can turn any letter or package into an email so it can be delivered straight to your computer. If you have a handwritten love letter or thoughtful present, what better way to receive it than by email?"
The mini post box has a door that opens, revealing a tiny post office inside. Other Dinky Doors in Cambridge include a tiny teleporter in the Market Square and the 10 and a Quarter Downing Street door on Downing Street. A fourth door on Gwydir Street was destroyed by vandals. A further four mini portal projects are planned.
