and then CLICK HERE to see my YOUTUBE video, which through some accidental glitch has a strange spiral distortion to it. The one I posted to IUOMA (2018 and after) Facebook site is not distorted. …

R.I.P. Steven Donald Dalachinsky

I received this collaged postcard from Steve Dalachinsky this month, but didn't get around to a reply before he passed away yesterday. He said he didn't have a lot of mail art correspondents anymore, but we knew Steve personally because of shared poetry circles, where Steve was a shining star. Our son crossed paths with Steve at Sun Ra Arkestra earlier on the same day he experienced a stroke. Later that day he performed his poetry at "A Book About Death" 10th Anniversary Exhibit at Islip Art…

Dadabloge

Yesterday, June 21, 2018, MOBIUS posted our documentation of FluxmaZZ performance, which took place at Portage Park, Chicago, as part of Chicago Fluxfest. But also look at other posts that are being put up all during this month of June - especially look at the Dada Nurse events that happened earlier this month on Staten Island.

Scanning & Sharing Mailart here or on Facebook platform

I put more weight on a reply via snail mail than on any kind of online documentation by the recipient of my mailart. And I hope my mailart contacts are not offended when I do not scan and document online the mailart they send to me. I am old-school in that regard. Though occasionally I might scan & post mailart I receive, it's only done on a whim, not with any regularity.

Mailart Spreadsheet Documentation

Per spreadsheet documentation I've maintained the past 13 months: Approximately 50 mail artists correspond with me with an average of 7 exchanges per contact during that same period. (There were many exchanges I did not average in, because only one or two exchanges occurred in this period, which may've been submissions to M.A. exhibits/projects; also, I threw out the highest exchange mail artist, Otto Sherman, for purposes of averaging m.a. exchanges.) 

This spreadsheet…

Letter started, never finished or mailed, to mailartist Lon Spiegelman from 1985:

Dear Spiegelman,

I don't really know that the mailart community is all that interested in our live little mailart product, but since you made such a big deal out of Ben Bennett's birth when guest editing Judith Hoffberg's Umbrella newsletter, I can understand how you might want to follow up on it. Your son, Lon, is one of the main events of your life, so you can appreciate Ben's impact on us. Yet I tell you, the majority of artists I meet in the live social scene of Columbus…
