Could somebody please tell me what (if anything) this means?

This is from the introduction to the 'My Passport'  Mail Art call:"Author’s note: “The present work is an exploration and development through analogue synthesizer of an imaginary whistle of compound sharpener and decomposed in the form of an oscillated frequency stream.

A few years ago I formed an association of contemporary art called ASAC, was the first President, organised a couple of international art exhibitions and then resigned. I am about to be thrown out of the association because I am critical of the way it has subsequently developed -- and you would be too. So now ASICK rises from the ashes, and here is a non-poster of it's…

I am having an exhibition in March called 'Carrés/Squares). Everything in it will be...you guessed it...square(ish). 70 different sorts of works are going to e in it, including these square collections of 51/2" Floppy Disks that were very kindly given to me by Katerina a while back. Square Floppys on lil Square canvasses. Mercy Buckets, Katerina!…

How many photos should be posted at any one time or in any one day?

Posted on January 1, 2018 at 12:56pm 7 Comments

I think the number should be FIVE.

Any more, and the occasional photo or two that a person posts just gets lost when another person posts 30 photos, and then another person posts another 30, and then....etc.

Adapting John Lennon's words: "Give photos a chance."

Peace.

HI Val, nice to hear from you! I never did anything about the bus stop idea - so many other things got in the way. I was developing this idea for a mail art exhibition in Vienna, which would have been a great venue, 25 meters of shop windows, and there is bus stop too coincidentally. https://diewandzeitung.wordpress.com/ I had contacted them with a proposal. Unfortunately, just today I got their response and the news that they are going to discontinue the project Wandzeitung. So unless they change their mind ... maybe I will contact some other venues, but I had my heart set on this one as it is right on the street corner, so I have to see how I feel. I guess the bus stop in the village is still a possibility.  These books about sovjet bus stops sound interesting! You had a mail art exhibition in a phone boy, I remember!
