Mail art by IUOMA member DharmaDaDa Neil Gordon (Torrington, Connecticut, USA)

 

July 10, 2018 - Trashpo (and the accompanying DKult of trashpoets) has been a network activity for about a decade. (Opinions differ – of course – about where and when Trashpo started.)

The popular consensus is that Trashpo began with postings by visual poet Jim Leftwich (Virginia, USA) on Fluxlist in 2007. Diane Keys (Illinois, USA) brought Trashpo to…

Hi.  I enjoy reading your analysis/commentary of the various works/mail art/techniques circulating.  You provide historical perspectives that add to the rich medium in which we are involved.  I appreciate your contributions!  I think you should keep the A&P I sent you.  I found it pretty well complete.......and you seemed like one recipient who would likely appreciate it more than others.  That's why I sent it to you.  May it all continue.  Debra

Hello De Villo--This is a followup to your comment on 'Li A' photo. The card is actually one that  I made and sent to Li Araki. So thank you for your comment and your 'favoriting' of my mail art over the past year. I'll watch for your posting of Li's work sent to you.

I'm laughing but I will seriously try much harder not to eat anything I get in the mail from now on (especially Mars bars!).

Oh my--was he really angry at you or just joking?!  Please reveal the story of the Monkey Purge when you're in the mood to tell it (I like long stories).

Thanks so much De Villo--I can see the signature now that you've pointed it out!
