Nice! I've sent pennies in little ziploc bags to the U.S. and Canada. Never further.

A test about using real money for postage. The mail from USA arrived in the Netherlands without problems. The letter to the USA never reached the address....

The most extremist that I have gotten is trying to mail organic matter. Sometimes I glue or sew bark, moss, etc,.. onto my postcards. I also recently sent some organic matter to a friend in a ziploc plastic bag after we took a walk. I like to see what makes it through the mail and what it looks like on the other side of its journey. Some of my organic matter can be found at

Cheers to mail art!

Holding a piece of Mail-Art with a specific form. Photo taken years ago when I was still living in Tilburg.

This is an "extreme" and strange mail art piece that I have gotten so far. Creepy and crawing with I don't know what? It appeared to be latex or synthetic something over somethings...that don't look to good (like insect parts? blood? or whatever) The smell was bad and in a few days something fungus started growing so it has since been "de-toxed". I did manage to scan it...but it stuck to the glass from the heat! It is no longer. It has gone one to mail art heaven or where ever...Someone might know who this is from? Not a member of IUOMA, but somewhere Pedro got my address. It is "extreme" a slimy sort of way.

Another sample of extreme mailings. An analogue camera that was supposed to be clicked and to pass on. The mail-men could play as well. When the film was full the camera should be returned. It actially worked and I got a print out of all the photos taken with the camera while it travelled..... Done in the 90-ies.
