Visual Mom replied to Ruud Janssen's discussion the 1.000th Brain Cell in the group BRAIN CELL - RYOSUKE COHEN - COMPILATION
"Ryosuke, himself, does not own a complete set of Brain Cells. The first 500 (500 plus a 2-digit no. I don't remember) were all sent by him to a mailart contact in Germany, who passed away, and he doesn't know what became of that…"

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
1977
My Website:
http://cmehrlbennett.wordpress.com/
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I'm enjoy sharing my art and having an artist/poet support network which is more important to my creativity then institutional attention, which is often more stifling then supportive. These days, mail-art is more the NORM for me then the creation of art objects. I've been working more in 2-D with graphics software anyway, and that is well suited to creating small book editions and mailart multiples. My spouse, John M. Bennett, and I were able to meet Clemente Padin & other Latin American visual poets/ experimental writers in 2008 in Montevideo Uruguay, and to enjoy Paris France with Nicolas Carras and Alan Revich for a week. In 2009 we presented visual poetry in Mexico City at the X Bieniel, and since then also at Montevideo, UR and Buenos Aires, AR. In 2011, flux fests enabled us to perform fluxus scores in Chicago (2011-2014, 2015 five Chicago Fluxfests!) and NYC; and at Roanoke VA MAF and now, AfterMAF annual events, plus the occasional Minneapolis gigs via Musicmaster and/or MN Book Arts events. I've became more involved with artist stamps when I helped Ginny Lloyd to research/edit articles for a book about 30 women artistamp creators who've contributed to her artistamp archive. It is listed at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/ginnylloyd. Around the same time (end of Sept.'12) Fantagraphics released The Last Vispo (1998-2009) for which I'm one of four contributing editors. Both those editing opportunities came about because of a desire to stay active and involved with the network.

Mailart Spreadsheet Documentation

Posted on March 15, 2016 at 8:55pm 3 Comments

Per spreadsheet documentation I've maintained the past 13 months: Approximately 50 mail artists correspond with me with an average of 7 exchanges per contact during that same period. (There were many exchanges I did not average in, because only one or two exchanges occurred in this period, which may've been submissions to M.A. exhibits/projects; also, I threw out the highest exchange mail artist, Otto Sherman, for purposes of averaging m.a. exchanges.) 

This spreadsheet…

Letter started, never finished or mailed, to mailartist Lon Spiegelman from 1985:

Posted on June 27, 2015 at 10:46pm 3 Comments

Dear Spiegelman,

I don't really know that the mailart community is all that interested in our live little mailart product, but since you made such a big deal out of Ben Bennett's birth when guest editing Judith Hoffberg's Umbrella newsletter, I can understand how you might want to follow up on it. Your son, Lon, is one of the main events of your life, so you can appreciate Ben's impact on us. Yet I tell you, the majority of artists I meet in the live social scene of Columbus…
