Loose leaf book pages by Diane below are fantastic. What is "scratch paper," a new term I've missed by being ungrouped lately? Here's a gorgeous piece by Mail Art Martha that the scanner didn't do justice to, as usual:

Great Trashaiku!

It is interesting, and posibly a subject for deep philosophical analysis, how Trashpo links and overlaps with so many other art forms. Collage,  concrete poesy, assemic writing and much more.

Jessica Manack sent me a huge envelope stuffed with a multitude of Japanese product packaging. Not sure how she has access to so much in PA,  but I made this Trashaiku from it
