One of Guido’s beautiful envelopes arrived on a grey day. It was relatively intact – I KNOW the tears and smears and missing bits are part of mail art, but MAN! I just HAVE to get used to that. We’ve got things with teeth here in the mail boxes, that’s the problem… - The title - "Standing Out in A Crowd"
Inside the envelope was another artwork titled “Already in 1875 visionary children knew tsunamis were coming but nobody listens to kids or visions”.
This work is reminiscent of Max Ernst’s Une Semaine De Bonté (A Week of Kindness or The Seven Deadly Elements) – the Surrealistic collage novel, in particular the second book – Monday with its element Water.
“D, - What do you see?
E , - Water
D, - What color is this water?
R, - The Color of Water”
(Benjamin Péret, endormi)
Guido’s water is the color of Tsunami’s.
