I'd like to hear other members' opinions on something. Would you rather be asked if you would like to receive an add & pass, or would you rather just have them arrive in your mailbox without…Continue

These might be coming your way, Add-n-Pass Group members!

Carolyn, you didn't miss anything. If anyone's interested in receiving the package and doing something with the contents and sending it on, all they have to do is let me know, I'm going to the P.O. tomorrow.

Umm...What is the CRASH BURN LOVE project? I must've missed something here.

Comment by Bill Lowenburg on Wednesday

Anyone in the USA interested in participating in the CRASH BURN LOVE Add & Pass project? It's all sealed up and ready to go. I got things started with a few additions of my own and now it's up to you.

I get a kick out of adding, copying, and passing.

Sometimes I copy an add& pass and send out copies with different alterations to several people so that the original mailartist might receive totally different results depending on how they migrated. 

I’d like to hear about other add and pass games.

By the way, I recently designed this stamp. I haven’t used it yet, but it might hand some clue to the recipient :-)

Hello Bill,

To my experience there are no rules nor any guidelines at all. Sometimes the one who started an A&P writes on the sheet ‘when full, return to .... (his or her address)’, and many times no such thing is written, so it remains a question where the sheet will end.

Speaking for myself, I’ve had an ‘add and return’ project (in which I sent out art on postcard size) of which it was clear that the receiver was asked to return after adding to it (see my group ‘what or whom is she staring at?’). Other mail art I’ve sent out ‘in the wild’, and as there are no rules, all options the sender would choose, were and are okay to me.

Generally I think it polite to return a piece when the sender asks for it, and if a piece of mail art lands in someone’s home for good, I think that is all in the mail art game. If I’d like to keep something which I am supposed to forward, I’d scan it, keep the copy, and still forward the original. 

I’m looking forward to reading the others’ thoughts!
