At the invitation of curator Ming Tiampo, 200 artists from around the world created limited edition postcards to be placed inside the Gutai Card Box during the exhibition Gutai: Splendid Playground at the Guggenheim Museum in New York (2013). Patrons could purchase a card by placing a coin in the machine and receiving a randomly chosen card from the ones created. Taler created a series of cards containing a piece of 16mm film strip whose image is the poem in The Soldier and the Braid.
