Richard Canard Add & Pass Scans (I Stole from Amy Irwen)

IUOMA member Richard Canard Carbondale Fluxus Add & Pass (Photo by Amy Irwen, Minnesota, USA)

April 18, 2019 - I have never seen nor heard of Richard Canard initiating an add & pass sheet let alone one mentioning Fluxus. So I was surprised when I saw these images turn up on FB thanks to Amy Irwen. I just had to have a copies so I downloaded them clandestinely (which you can do!) and now I share them with you, oh faithful IUOMA friends. Note some "usual suspects" are involved.  How curious. Richard never fails to surprise and amuse. We'll see if this ever turns up again.

18.04.19 Dare Mister De Villo Sloan, If me/memory serves ( & it is becoming (as time goes by) more & more questionable),  the "Carbondale Fluxus" labeled gesture was initially simply a xerox copy of a photo [that I found to be unique & of possible interest  to the party in which it was sent}  from the local university student paper & was re-released into the network ( & not necessarily intended to be incorporated into an "Add & Pass" ----Although, (& let me be perfectly clear here ) what happens upon receipt by a fellow mail artist is perfectly okay & free to become  "whatever" in their hands. The "Return" address business  at the bottom of the "8 &1/2 X 11" is not my handwriting & I do not presently have a memory that it was ever resent my way---that's perfectly okay to my way of thinking & simply a part of the mysterious process. I do have an interest in the  "Add & Pass " phenomenon...my regard for the concept is based on the manner in which Ray Johnson ( I assume its still considered okay to pay homage) introduced  the technique in his correspondence school by encouraging one correspondent to send to another by labeling ''tid-bits" in an envelope with instructions to relay to a new name & address or marked with a " Please send to 'So & So' ".   De Villo, Thank you for your many varied & thoughtful attentions---you cover practically everything-it' sorta amazing! SinCelery, Richard Canard
