an interview

A reporter from western Australia, Christopher Lewis, interviewed me in 2013. He had used a piece of music I released using a Creative Commons license and was also interesting in talking my philosophy of releasing music in this way. The piece is called 'Sullivant'. This isn't about mail art specifically, but it is in the same spirit of collaboration and art as gift, which is of course very much in line with what mail art is about. Also, you can see what I look (and sound) like. I don't like…

BREAKING NOSE: Sigean Standardisation Committe reports on new, revised size of ATCs

Sarah Waldon: Snake

My very first Waldon masterpiece.  It's exciting to match the name to the work.  Well actually there were two mail art pieces in the same envelope, but I can't spoil you all in one day.   You'll have to wait until Saturday morning.

Also an add n'pass piece was enclosed.  I'm not to good at add and pass as I never use an envelope.  However I happen to be meeting another…

Tea and ATC from Mercedes La Marquesa

Send from the USA on the 13th and received in the Netherlands at the 19th of August!!! Can you believe that? I wish all Mail Art had that speed. ;-) And in it was a teabag with the sentence "Sipping thoughts of peace, hope floats my way." The flavor? Moonlight Spice! I like to drink tea and will enjoy this thinking of Mercedes in New Mexico. The ATC also hit a favorite place,…
