A good lesson learnt from Bifidus and the Crimson Giant

Bifidus wrote and asked if I had looked in the envelope?

Confession time! I had not. For some obscure reason I had read into his work that the envelope should remain closed, that there was nothing inside, that symbols had no opening/business being interpreted ("Any symbol caught not being identical to itself is subject to automatic ejection, a $10000 fine and 12 hours community service"). I had read his work a certain way, but his… Continue

Received: New-Old School mail-art, bunny stamps by Miss James (Brooklyn, New York, USA)

October 16, 2010 - Miss James did not make my day. She made my week, my month. I picked up my mail at the PO very early Saturday morning. Immediately I saw the NYNY stamp on the front and the Brooklyn address on the back and her beautiful artwork. Miss James sent me a special set of her bunny stamps, which I have seen at the IUOMA. This set is perfect for Halloween, although there is… Continue

From Bifidus The Crimson Giant Part 2

With great elation I received the first return mail for the collaborative mail art book The Crimson Giant from Bifidus Jones.

I asked Bifidus to please explain some of his thoughts in the compilation of his work.

He wrote this:

"Gertrude Stein, an American writer, came up with the "Rose is a rose" line in a poem entitled “Sacred Emily”--written in the… Continue

Otto von Bismarck mail art call - from Roland Halbritter

A second Luftpost closely followed the first one. This is a mail art call from Roland Halbritter in Nüdlingen.

I love my scanner, but I have to say that it didn't do a great job with this texture. The postcard is actually shiny and has this metallic sliver/gold feel to it.

The call is about Otto von Bismarck, I refer you to Roland's blog about it:… Continue

Received: Mail-art of the Nihil from Eduardo Cardoso (Portugal)

September 14, 2010 - Eduardo Cardoso sent me mail-art that has been long-awaited. And this piece was worth the wait because it is for me such an original statement that becomes part of the dialog of mail-art visual poetry at the IUOMA. First, Eduardo has called this piece "Tears." There is an artist's reason for this, but it is not about IUOMA. Tania - and I am sure Eduardo - add our… Continue

For the Project The World is a Town from Frank Odette and Stefano Fossiant Sini

I received the first mail for the Project "The World is a Town" from Australia and Italy - now I will HAVE to dismantle the book TODAY, and it will begin a new life in Mail Art. Frank sent a very interesting sort of hyper-palimpsest - a page that has been written on over and over so that previous traces of writing are visible. He did this on a glossy photographic paper, scoring the sheet and then rubbing in charcoal (Right Frank??). You did some research…
