After WEEKS of ZALOP mail from Ambassador E, the World is a Town finally arrived. No Insomnia in this bright place! A beautiful accordion book made of the thickest card. The cover of the book is also the envelope - dual purpose - something like a town INSIDE the world?Continue
From Katerina Nicoltsou and Georgia Grigoriadou
I KNOW these two are enjoying sun and sand - aside from telling us so - their work LOOKS like it! This is one lady on IUOMA that I KNOW heart matters to. MomKat is supportive of everyone, sends out work like a MACHINE and collaboratives with a giving spirit ALL THE TIME!! The heart is an asemic matter too for sure - we unconsciously write on it and into it ALL the time. A tablet of living flesh. Thats what this looks like.…Continue
I have had to wait so long for this. If ever, in a hundred years, THEY dig in my cupboards, THEY will know that this is a genuine artifact. Its asemic, poetic and authentic. Its Karen of course. Wrapping cardboard daggers in red thread, pasting onto paper slabs. And the back says, Happy Birthday.
K.C. - SO great to see you again :-)…Continue
I wonder if the Ether is like Camelot? I dont know, in the half light I thought I heard Lord Tennyson. The faintest of echoes in a winter sky.
"There she weaves by night and day
A magic web with colours -grey-

A curse is on her if she stay
To look down to Camelot"
We had been in despair Marie and I about lost Mail Art. I know its part of the process, but ALL THAT WORK – just lost in the Ether – it doesn’t seem fair somehow. But yesterday was different. Yesterday was My Triple Turn.
First off – a shoe polish box Marie found at an antiquarian in Prague. A shoe polish box that went from Prague, to France, to Japan and is…Continue
I KNOW altered books - they're my 'thing' - Nancy could not have chosen a better medium to send me. It is interesting that she imposed collages and asemic writing on pages of pre-written text, torn from their original moorings - I mean - this page is already written. It HAD meaning. It was an insular world, a concluded entity.Continue
There's all sorts of jargon that that only those in the know know - right?Continue
I received an intricate collage from Theresa featuring asemics, iconic images and dancing skeletons. A clue to the contents was on the front of the envelope – “It’s a good week for lovers of old-school monster Reade, the godfather of stop-motion animation.” Reade (1927 – 1998) was of course the Australian who created the character Pepe – an animated propaganda cartoon character in Cuba. Theresa and Stamped Theresa's :-) X…Continue
