About / Contact



Hi, my name is Ivan Cash.
I’m an interactive artist & filmmaker who runs a small, San Francisco-based creative studio and consultancy. We specialize in socially engaging projects, both art and commercial, designed to make the world more radically human and connected.

I love sharing my thoughts, ideas, and experiences through giving talks and workshops, teaching, and collaborating with culture-shaping companies across the globe.

I'm founder of the Snail Mail My Email project and author of the accompanying book. My work has exhibited internationally, been featured in CNN, TIME, The New York Times, and Juxtapoz, and I've been recognized as an Art Directors Club Young Gun.

I believe talking to strangers can change the world but nothing would make me happier than if you closed your eyes for 20 seconds and just listened to your breath.
