I didn't realize that Bern Porter's page is still on IUOMA. I recommend you check it out. IUOMA says tomorrow is his birthday, but some other dates are mentioned.

He was a fascinating man. I wish I had known him. Happy Birthday, Bern.

This is Bern Porter's birthday! He gave up work as a scientist on the Manhattan Project (nuclear weapons) to become an artist mostly working with found materials and of course active in mail-art for many decades. Here's a Bern Porter link to (Charles Bernstein's) Penn Sound Project:

Or that our place in the world a small space like a room, house or a landscape.
