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