"Gratzi Ms. Huff! I'm glad you liked the imagery (and even shot a picture of it; which is the only way I document my stuff - if the recipients shoot or scan it). Will post more if you like...  "

"Thank you for what, so far, is a bi-monthly occurrence. I haven't googled the dates on the nosey stamp - I presume they have much or no significance? And please tell me about Girum Archives. There is much about much that I do not know."

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
1989
My Website (without http://):
http://www.mnartists.org/artwork/steve-rife-tweaks-artpolice-instal...
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
To rejoin the hand to the spirit, the feet to the hand, and paper to the word.

I've been involved in Mail Art for several decades, beginning in the late 80s, when I invited people to contribute, by mail, to a program for cable access here in the Midwestern US. Postcards, art video, letter-art, poetry, detourned ads, mysterious objects. In downtown St. Paul, in a former boot factory, I maintained a shrine for several years, to a figure I no longer remember the name of. (The shrine was kept in an envelope, and never had a visitor.)

Earthling, this may be the last but certainly it´s not the least welcome message to IUOMA you are going to receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. I´d love to be the other end if you wish to trade mail art with a celestial mail artist. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe
Terrene Embassy
Republik van Patland
Caixa Postal 24827
Curitiba-PR
80510-970
Brazil

I look forward to see a piece of yours in my terrene mailbox. I´ll do my homework after receiving your artwork. This is nothing less than a Celestial Promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland Official Envelope Provider.
