A Blog for Eduardo Cardoso: Hypertext Anomaly

Mail art received at the end of December 2010.

This is the first mail art I have received from Eduardo the author of Paranormal Mail Art.  The title Hypertext Anomaly speaks volumes in interpreting this visually beautiful piece.  Take a bike ride through visual text. Interestingly Eduardo has pasted these newspaper images of a window over the window of the envelope .  This action blocks one view, whilst granting access to another.  The window of an envelope generally allows us to see content -  the new view is content looking out - if you get my drift??

We know hypertext to be a nonlinear system of writing giving the viewer  access to - in this case - visual language through multiple pathways.  Using skillful collage, Eduardo has created a wall that acts as a mirror or gate to an alternate reality.  The seamless collage is however brought firmly back into the present by the dominant placing of linear text over the balcony - another place to access a view.

Various points of view and realities through various types of windows.  An Anomaly.

Hey Eduardo - thank you - its great!  I look forward to further correspondence in the future. :-)
