Submission to Grigori Antonin's Mailart Show in Honor of Jean Genet's 100th Birthday

August 31, 2010 - This photo documents "Solo for Violin," a performance by a Fluxus founder George Maciunas. I posted this last week for a few hours during a discussion on the IUOMA board. I received enough very positive feedback from members who saw it that I thought I'd share it again. Not everybody is familiar. The discussion involved Minnesota mailartist Grigori Antonin. My point was that the photo and the…

Received: Mailart satire Public School Science Project Third Place Winner (Minnesota, USA)

August 29, 2010 - This piece of what I am interpreting to be satirical mailart arrived in my mailbox postmarked Saint Cloud, Minnesota. The identity of the artist is unclear to me, although I believe it is from a member of the IUOMA. I've been amused by this and was also grateful to be reminded of the humorous aspect of mailart that can give you a reality check, often when most needed.…

Look at my shoes - for Crystel

This one is for my friend Crystel. I see her only twice a year when I go back to Europe and I miss her. This summer we both bought a very similar pair of red shoes and it became a sort of an in-joke between us. When I saw this add for shoes in one of the vintage magazines I bought in Jinbocho I immediately felt like sending it to her.

The envelope is made from a very cheep print of a famous japanese woodblock print.

There are not so many price tags around these days, everything seems… Continue

Grigori challanges my faith as I question whether Sloanisn is truly the path I'm on. God help me! Nice piece by the way!

Received: Mailart collage and Barbie (k)not from Helene Lagache (Bordeaux, France)

August 28, 2010 - Helene Lagache sent me a very carefully assembled mailart package that represents the continuation of a somewhat fragmented conversation we've been having. When I first joined the IUOMA several months ago, I saw her beautiful mailart collages and was drawn to their vibrant colors, use of repetition, and ripped paper technique.…

Received MA - Karen Champlin (Illinois)

Art Nation (Karen Champlin) sends me a second mailing - SANCTUARY - Latin text secured with brads to corrugated card. Marked CONFIDENTIAL - and sealed in a stamped and padded envelope (not shown), KC reminds us again the ART IS LONG, LIFE IS SHORT and continues to keep her prodigious talents at work. As I learn more and more about MA and contribute to the movement, I am bolstered by the work of KC and others - as we explore the various worlds, demands and needs of ourselves and others. BRAVO!… Continue

Mt Fuji, Good Luck and Goldfish Rubber Stamps

My first rubber stamps, Japanese style. I feel like I'm back at nursery school really, but making rubber stamps is so rewarding, totally worth that like bit of effort.

"Specimen Rare" Postal Stamps

Making your own postal stamps is as fun as it can possibly get. This one was my first attempt. I took a fake photo booth picture of myself on La PhotoCabine and turned it into a vintage stamp with a "Specimen Rare" label on it.

It took me a while to figure out how to cut them out to actually make them look like stamps. Not so easy, but I think they look quite decent.…
