I may have to go offline for a while. It's been heavy going at our main office, where a war horse of a computer is showing signs of possibly having some sort of a breakdown here shortly. We may have to take it to the dealer for work, or even leave it there for further study. Right now we are holding steady, but it seems sketchy for us here. Our nerve center blowing its top would not be funny.

Take care…

Regarding the Tag U R it project

First let me thank all those who participated in the project up to this point. It has been more sucssesful than I ever imagined.

 However after having a very seriuos virus removed from my desk top computer, it has left me with a strange after effect. I can no longer post to the IUOMA blog! I have no idea why. I am posting this from my lap top. But the lap top is not connected to my scanner, so it is just a hassel to scann tags into the desk top then try and get them on the lap top to…

Two dynamic tablets from Karen...speaking volumes!

How amazing is the work of Karen! And each piece is unique and more dynamic than the earlier ones received.

These two are "companion" pieces, as it is "my man with the blue beret" and his "house". Asemic writings are

stamped throughout and haptic textures abound!…

Arte Correo 2 - from Viviana Cernjul

Bain de couleurs with this mail from Viviana Cernjul. This is the work of a meticulous little mail art ant, all the lines of the envelope are cut out and glued on, and some of the circle inside the square are too, if not filled with felt-tip pen. A lot of work!

Thank you Viviana!…

Recieved from Jon Foster, USA--Found Art (where the heck is this place?)

I have the same question Jon has: Why wasn't this location identified on the card? Do any of you know where this is? And why two views? What's up with the big white stripe? The only info on the card was the printer's name so I actually googled Curteichcolor and… Continue
