Because I love sending and receiving things in the mail that are exciting and interesting rather than overdue bills and junk mail. I love being able to create something arty and sending it across the world, corresponding with people from different and similar backgrounds and hopefully brightening someone's day through my art
The artist Jean-Francois Aillet invites you to collect your sample of sand from a moraine, from next to a waterfall or beside a river, along the shore of a lake or a stream, in a desert or on the border of an ocean. One should not, however, send him sand from a construction site. You are asked to document your collection of the material with a photo, taken as you are pouring the sand into a container. For an example, kindly visit his home page at www.aillet.com . English : http://www.aillet.com/traductions/anglais.htm
See you to take part in this international project.
Jean-François Aillet Sculpteur / Designer 10, Allée des Tilleuls 14860 Amfréville Normandie / France
"...love sending and receiving things in the mail....love being able to create something arty and sending it across the world... corresponding with people from different and similar backgrounds..." All what you say sounds excellent to me and because of all that I would like to be the other end if you decide to trade mail art. If that´s the case, your envelope should read as follows
The Celestial Scribe Caixa Postal, 24827 Curitiba-PR 80510-970 Brazil
II look forward to see your piece in my mailbox. Yes!, I will do my homework after receiving yours. That’s a celestial promise. I’m Patricio, The Celestial Scribe.
