2018 : IUOMA 30 years old

On the upper corner of the IUOMA at NING it reads:On August 16th 1988 the idea of the IUOMA was born. In November 2008 this IUOMA platform at NING became the home for members.So, in 2018 it seems we will still be here in NING thanks to all the members that donate, and we have the peasure of celebrating 30 years of IUOMA and 10 years on NING.This groups is to start with ideas on how we will do that.

Ask Anything

There are a lot of basic questions on Mail Art that are often asked and answered. This group might be the first place to look for answers. I will do my best to answer, but hope that other members can help out as well.

My Website:
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I like communication, art, paper, painting and concepts. The ideal combination for doing Mail-Art. Worked with rubberstamps as a child and started sending out letters as soon as I could write. Discovered that it was called mail-art in 1980. Have been discovering ever since and in the last years also promoting this free cultural exchange.

Latest mail to Ryosuke Cohen:

Just to keep the flow going and thank him for another Brain Cell I received.

He sent out #981 now, so in 19x10 = 190 days the expected #1000 might come out. It is June now, so end of this year we might see the historical issue of a very long-time project.…

Hello Ruud,

First of all my thanks for all at the work that you put into maintaining this wonderful community of artists. Secondly, and I hate to make work for you, but comments in the Latest Activity section on Mypage seem to have disappeared, except for the most recent one. There were about 25 comments. This happened within the last 24 hours. My last 2 interactions were with De Villa Sloane. 

I have not changed my settings during that timeframe, so am unsure how this happened. Is there a cure for this work of internet gremlins? 

I appreciate your help with this.

Nog van Harte  met je  verjaardag, gister! 

En bedankt voor al je mooie mail art! Ik ben wat laat met posten/bloggen/antwoorden. In ieder geval staat je 'Don't forget that bit' nu eindelijk daar geblogd.

Gelukkige Verjaardag Ruud!

Yes, I somehow was transformed into Bug Post when I had only requested that a beetle enquire on my behalf to find out if the real Bug Post continues to survive and thrive.  It is a crushing responsibility to now be Bug himself, when I feel far more like Debug.  Am sending about 70 words for your IUoMA compendium......what is it?  Thirty years?  You and your project bridge the milleniums, from pencil to electrode:  Updating the Network's potential for meaningful continuity.  Paragraph 1.  Put that in your upcoming book.
