De Villo Sloan commented on De Villo Sloan's blog post Collab mail art book by Laura Ortiz (Canada) & De Villo Sloan (USA)
"Concrete and visual poetry have been part of the mail art network so you find a lot of folks doing image-text. In fact, they might have faded away or not spread internationally were it not for the network. Asemic writing is a new manifestation (or…"

"I've never tried to make work with asemic writing but have sort of looked over the shoulders of friends experimenting with it. I've spent as much of my time and energy in language-related things as in visual art, so at some point, think…"

Hi, De Villo, I was wondering if you have received my card? I mailed it out in early August. Thanks

Thank you for friending, and for the add and pass history you contributed in your comments to the Add&Pass group discussion "Just Send...Or Ask First?" I just read them with fascination!  <3

I love your comment on Travel Mail Art, In fact, I am going away this weekend to a town in the country for a historical commemoration event. This is the first time I am making such a trip. I may give Travel Mail Art a try. Would you like a card?

Hey DVS, I’ve been meaning to post this for some time,,,, Upon perusing Ourang Outang and some of your other work I noticed a theme. Quite often you create a diamond shaped image, which calls to mind a rebirth. To me it represents a literal birth canal or vagina. Would love to hear your thoughts on why diamond shapes are present in a great deal of your work.  Thanks! JBL

Dear De Villo. No, not great just fortuitous.  I addressed an envelope to Rysuke but decided I needed something larger.  Not wanting to waste the time I stuck the envelope front to another I found here - containing an electricity bill once upon a time - and it needed covering up so . . . the quickest way was to shred a magazine page.  I am not convinced it will survive the postal system but no doubt we shall see.

Thanks anyway for the encouragement.  At least now I know what to send you!
