Season's Greetings

Until 1993, Ar.co resorted frequently to the use of commercial Season’s Greetings cards in order to extend to institutions and publics its Christmas/New Year wishes. An illustration especially made by António Marques in 1994 starts the tradition of  having teachers, students or ex-students produce an image for a personalized Season’s Greetings card. The printed card, sent by mail, is at some point inevitably substituted by the electronic fixed image or short film, sent by e-mail or posted on-line.
