Angie & Snooky: I'm building up to something that I tentatively call 'Dead Technologies'.

First Arty Slides.

Second Polaroids.

Then vinyl.

Next floppy disks (I have about 15 3 1/2 inch ones)

To cassettes, reel-to-reel tapes, ....?

A slide of a virgin? That could be difficult to find.

(Joke in bad taste:  Q. why wasn't Baby Jesus born in [choose the country you wish to denigrate]?  A. Because they couldn't find 3 wise men and a virgin]

I am not sure that I am qualified medically or artistically to engage in this discussion, but it does occur to me that a used arty slide cannot be a virgin arty slide.

Please would someone send me a virgin slide or two? I have some ideas but no slides! Thanks!

Arty slides and vinyl? I can see the potential!

I'm a bit behind in thanking Stripygoose for the great slides she sent. Here are the Bridget Riley slides - so fun!Erni's friend Edmund is helping me sort and describe mailart these days.

Hey Val. That sounds like a fun idea but I don't want to "lead" that call.

Anyone else want to take up Val's rainbow?

Comment by Valentine Mark Herman on March 19, 2014 at 6:16am

PS, Angie & Snooky.

My numbers are wrong.

You need 7 people -- one per rainbow colour.

Each must send you 7 (not 4) Arty Slides of 'their' colour.

You keep one set of 7 Rainbow Slides, and then distribute the other 6 to the other 6 participants.

If there 14 people interested, then you can set up 2 Rainbow 'Gangs'.

if there are more than 8 but less than 14, then the Plus element comes into it.

One thing worries me though, and that is people sending their rainbow Slides late. the thing will only work when there are complete Rainbow sets, and so if people delay for one reason or another, it spoils (or delays) the whole thing for everyone.

Okey dokey?
