LOST MAIL ART

This is a place where you can blog your mail art which went missing.  It will give us an idea of: 

1) How many Mail Art pieces go missing 

2) Types of Mail Art pieces which go missing 

3) Which countries were involved   

It will also be a way for the "would be recipient" and the rest of us to see what you sent.  

Awards & competitions to be announced at a later date!

Thanks for the invite Dean! My mail gets lost or returned to me a LOT! I've been told of only two things sent to me since 2012 that have gone awry... Guess my MA is often too out o'  bounds...?

(btw, I sent you some MA May 15h or so Keith, did you get it?)

The first two pieces were never received as verified by Kim...the last piece is unknown...but Kim has had much more serious things to deal with than my mail art.....so I do hope I hear from Kim soon...whether by msg or by mail *!*

PostScript: for those recipients that have responded and have helped cultivate ongoing correspondence, that is a beautiful thing and I feel very lucky to have made those connections. All else is, lost in the mail . . .

Amy, I have sent a few pieces to Kim Jung Youn, in South Korea, although she never responds via this website, I have received pieces from her in return, so I know they are getting to their destination.

However, a large percentage of pieces I have sent out go without response and therefore, yes, may be lost in the mail or just be sitting somewhere in a dusty corner of some unresponsive recipient's spare room. No matter, mail art is transient, ephemera, leaves on the wind. Once I drop a piece in the mailbox, I have no expectations of its voice harkening back to me.

But then, after a few attempts to such recipients, eventually those address might be culled from the mail-out list . . . give it a year or so.

My first piece of mail art is lost in the mail maybe for ever.
