In truth, I was fortunate enough to be peripherally involved with the art scene of Vancouver-by-the-Void in the 1970s, as a video artist and filmmaker. Generating aesthetic merchandise in this lonely outpost of humanity naturally led me to want to stretch tentacles, tweak testicles, to like-minded wreckers, gigglemeisters, spiritual seekers and bad elements across the globe. As a political exile from Lyndon Johnson's warfare / welfare state, currently in neo-remittanceman exile in Southeast Asia, I do appreciate the niceties of cyberspace. From my Video Mailart (working mostly in Osaka in the early 1980s) to current contemplative cocksucking, I look south and see round the bend.

Personal Mail-Art Invitation:
MOMA = Museum of Mail Art
Letter Envelope and Artistamps
Dear Networker,dear Byron
On the 18th of September 2011 the Art Museum of the Canton of Thurgau in Switzerland will have an Opening for the exhibition "Conquer the Living Rooms of the World." This is a retrospective of my artistic activities from almost the last 40 years.
One section of the exhibition is dedicated to my activity in the world-wide Mail Art Network. I am inviting you to send me one of your typical creatively altered letter envelopes and one of your sheets of stamps. The deadline is the 10th of September. Your contribution will be integrated into the exhibition and will become a part of the museum's collection.
This personal invitation is being extended to around 60 of my "old" Mail Art partners with whom I am currently still in contact with through Facebook.
I look forward to your contribution!

I'll definitely check out your work @ Satchi and the moto doesn't ring a bell, so you get my vote for ownership. Raleigh is like anywhere else, nothing much happening. I don't partake in tobacco, but the first job I had at 14 years old was picking it for cigar wrappers, all jobs since have been a piece of cake. If I had worked that hard on my art I'd have been famous a long time ago, hahahahaha.
Area, region, stall, area, place of belonging, residence, may be given endless definitions of where one chooses to be, by place of birth, which spends much of life, gestate emotions, situations, feelings, making we like being there.
It is possible that we move for various reasons, which makes us to stop taking it in another physical space and its place in the World.
Or that our place in the world a small space like a room, house or a landscape.
One and only one set and choose where to belong. Where he expresses his wishes, his family or weapon projects.
So we always have "our place in the World, by choice or fate or whoever that knows things, we were up there. Wherever we say "this is my place in the world"
How, why and what's yours? Compartámoslo.
