Putting a new light on TRASHPO from Helen Amyes in Western Australia

A translucent envelope reveals unique "trash"-in-the-mail! I hesitate to open the envelope, as the contents can be seen through its transparency. And that makes a "flu" image, both sides, seeing color and confetti shapes floating and fluxible! Even some asemic wording appears..."or taking costs"...or "or taking posts"? And I placed it against the light to emphasize the patterns that form...that are in flux....oh, maybe FLUXUS!

And below it is without the light from behind, though I am sure the postgal held it up to the sun

...just to get a glimpse of "what is inside"? Thank you, Helen, for a real rare treasure!

p.s. "Seed rusks removed"! ;-)

No seed husks...but something from Diego, the birdie? Amazing how your mail is inspected!

Well, Helen, i am enjoying the trashpo and poo very much...'will NOT open, just view from without ;-)

The contents can be shifted around and form new shapes and forms...it is fun! And elegant!

This one is "elegant trash" I would say :-)))

What a great idea

"Sophisticated trash" - Marie said that about DK's work but it applies here. I wonder if Jim Leftwich realizes something he started 6 years ago has taken on new life.
