It seems facebook doesn't like my name, perhaps someone stole my identity, poor bastard. So, I'll have to stay here in the ghetto, too bad Ackerman wasn't here (Ghetto Blaster). Moved to Maine in 88 to 90, saw Pittore daily, Saunders and Altemus now and then, Moved to the Boston area to remarry (Carlo and Robert attended) and 1.5 years ago moved to North Carolina, my wife (Kelly) company moved us (many $$) than laid her off 3 months later. I still do art work, I think I sent you a copy of my first 50+ years (I'll check my records) if not I can send you a copy, photography pays my bills, rarely do mailart-if at all. There's the concise answer, which pains me. Do you know what happened to Kurt Thaler? Along time ago I had him gather a pebble from infront of the Cabaret Voltaire, spent years looking for traces of colored urine by Tzara on the stone. Always enjoyed your aesthetic.
