Mail-Artist since:
1957-1977 (didn't know it was mail art); 2009 (now I know)
My Website:

Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
like all of us, I suspect, I first did mail art as a child--flowers on cards for grandma, secret codes on letters to girlfriends. unwittingly, too, I made primitive dadaist collage on packages.

now I'm in my fifties. I work each day in hope for "the genius," as baudelaire said, to "recover that childhood at will, a childhood brighter now--gifted for self-expression with the tools of adulthood."

mail art originates in dada: this thrills me.

mail art is performance art: this ignites me.

[sorry--the following is out of date--what's not out of date is my flickr website]

my opening venture in mail art is with the wrappers & boxes I use to send books to people in a book-swapping club--paperbackswap.com. (hardbacks, too; 80,000 members; 600,000 titles.) these folks mostly don't know what mail art is & certainly don't expect to get anything more than the book they requested from me. so it's great fun--it's like tossing art into the wind. I mailed off 220 artworks on packages before I made any photos. =smile=
