yes, thank u, nadia, the main page changed again after i posted them, and i know, i agree with you on the friends section, what??????

Comment by Nadia Aroca on February 2, 2018 at 11:00pm

By the way, sorting the friends in chronological order doesn't work properly.

Comment by Nadia Aroca on February 2, 2018 at 10:50pm

In the main page is 2-1-3, so more strange yet. 3-2-1 is the order they appear in the photos page.

Comment by carl baker on February 2, 2018 at 9:34pm

La mia visione della Mail Art, si modifica continuamente. Oggi penso che vada vista, pensata e vissuta come una grande Opera, un grande movimento in continua metamorfosi, nel quale noi siamo piccole gocce in un grande mare, in un "MARE MAGNUM"... E sia anche giusto operare nella Mail Art, ma anche ai bordi della Mail Art : con video arte, performance art, e web art. io oggi lavoro volentieri come webartista.

My vision of Mail Art is constantly changing. Today I think it should be seen, thought and experienced as a great Opera, a great movement in continuous metamorphosis, in which we are small drops in a big sea, in a "MARE MAGNUM" ... And it is also right to work in Mail Art, but also at the edges of Mail Art: with video art, performance art, and web art. today I work willingly as a web artist.

Digital communication is just a new addition to the ways we already had.

Comment by Bruno Cassaglia on December 15, 2017 at 9:59pm

Io, fino a poco tempo fa pensavo che la Mail Art potesse diventare completamente digitale, ma forse mi sbagliavo, noi mailartisti, grazie a siti come IUOMA  o Dodo Dada, possiamo tenerci in contatto e divulgare opere digitali senza abbandonare la carta che spediamo per posta... siamo io ctredo,  dei networker completi. siamo storici ma anche attuali.

I, until recently, I thought that Mail Art could become completely digital, but maybe I was wrong, we mailartists, thanks to sites like IUOMA or Dodo Dada, we can keep in touch and divulge digital works without leaving the paper we send by mail ... we are ctredo, of complete networkers. we are historical but also current

If a photo doesn't upload complete. Just delete the result and try anew. Must be a glitch in the connection.

Dear Friends Mailartisti, I am Italian, and I do not know or speak or write in English. but I have been doing Mail Art since 1980, and I have organized many exhibitions as curator of SACS - Contemporary Art Space Experiment. And I realize that even today in my province, Savona, Mail Art is underestimated. In my opinion, Mail Art does not look into the single artist but as a whole, as if it were a single immense work in progress. I hug you.
