Can Trashpo Endure in a Green World? Cor Reijn (Zaandam, Netherlands)

Mail art by Cor Reijn (Zaandam, Netherlands)

 

July 10, 2019 - I was elated to receive this wonderful card from good mail art friend – Cor Reijn – in the Netherlands. With this elegant and highly conceptual piece, Cor Reijn expresses an issue that I am confident many are pondering at this moment. (Yet no one before has been able to express it so perfectly!) Thank you Cor Reijn.

I believe the question is something like: Can Trashpo (solely based in found, discarded material) endure in a world that is growing increasingly committed to being “green” (attuned to the environment; avoiding consumer wastefulness). I offer no answer but am aware that Trashpo is, indeed, being tested in changing times. Yet is not all art tested to see if it is worthy of being passed to the nest generation and beyond? Trashpoets, Kulters and Jaynists must look into their own hearts for answers. Cor Reijn provides a mantra.

Profound question in this piece. Can the answer be yes? There likely will always be wind through the streets and people dropping things accidentally or on purpose, unless humanity itself gets outlawed. Which might still happen. I've been afraid for so long of life becoming sterile that I still smoke 8 cigarettes a day. And then there's Fahrenheit 451.
