Art sent by electronic mail; is it art?

My answer to that is that art is in the psyque. What we see or hear is its outside manifestation, according to the medium  chosen. I love and practise all kinds of artistic techniques and enjoy every…Continue

So nice of you to make contact through this not very popular group, Richard. You are right, things will change and we should be prepared. More talk today in the news about the troubles of the Royal Mail. Well, they had to sell part of it so all the lucrative areas have gone to private enterprises. There is a big question mark as the maintenance of six days deliveries. The cost of postage is almost prohibiting, a postcard to the States, 10 grams, is £0.97 and will probably go up in April, as does very year. For a 20 grams letter it is £1.28  and if it is a bit thick, about 1cm , it is a packet and costs over £2 no matter if it is very light. I find myself working with the scales on the table to weigh as I go along, not really good, is it?
All gloom it seems, but hey! There is DKultmas coming and we will evolve and survive somehow. Today I am meeting two mail artists to go to a lecture on the history of the Christmas card, should be fun. Cheers!

28.11.14 Dare Ms. Mail Art Martha. & E-Mail Art,... Yes , I suspect that you are right--the days of the post office as we have known it are numbered. In my early years (at this silly postal game) I can still yet remember standing in line at a p.o. window listening to some old codger ahead of me  & complaining to the clerk that all he wanted was a  "penny postcard" . Of course, a U.S. Postcard at that point in time  already cost 4 or 5 cents--- which I believed to be  a fairly reasonable rate.  A similar postcard nowadays cost 34 cents ---no, that's incorrect. The price for a single postcard is actually 37 cents. The Post office now charges 3 cents extra for a coupla square inches of blank cardboard. I still purchase the cards upon occasion when I visit my local P.O....but oftentimes they are" out " ...not because they are so  popular-- but because no one hardly ever buys any & they don't bother to reorder.....It is reassuring to know that you & a growing multitude of creative individuals are already prepared to deal with the inevitable & soon to be common place electronic process of sharing images & aesthetic communications. ...although by that time,  no doubt,  Ruud Janssen will have moved on to holographic visitations  & three dimensional environmental messaging..... & me?...I'm rapidly becoming that very same  "old codger" mentioned earlier & will be hanging out on the sidewalk in front of what used to be the Post Office with my empty cup attempting to resell my stockpile of unused "Forever " stamps, old blank  postcards & tid-bits of my prized mail art collection to the newly revised "Stamp Collecting Hobbyists Of America who surely sometime in the future are bound to alas,discover "Mail Art".  Best to you. Richard C.

Heard in the news that the post office is in more and more trouble, the privatized companies are creaming off the lucrative side of the business, that is deliveries in urban areas. Surprise! The post as we know it might cease to exist it seems, but we emailartists will be ready. Won't we?
