7-Year Mail Art Performance with Angie Cope & Snooker Continues (Wisconsin, USA)

Angie 4.5.2018 - 1Mail art by IUOMA member Angie Cope & Snooker the Amazing Mail Art Dog (Port Washington, Wisconsin, USA)


April 6, 2018 - All my labors for art, and I end up as the straight guy in a performing dog act.

But seriously…

Seven years ago (more or less) inspired by Diane Keys and Rain Rien Nevermind, Angie Cope and I did a mail art exchange that became a performance piece. As usual, the whole thing is very convoluted. Some might still remember it. If not and if you have the time and inclination, you might want to look at the original documentation. And if you do click-in, don’t miss the comments section. It’ll bring a tear to your eye, as they say:


The whole thing re-emerged recently when Angie Cope asked for her stamps back. (You are not supposed to ask for people to return things in mail art!) I ( your still faithful Mink Rancher) sent one back and received the piece you see in this blog. These are the stamps:

That was a lot of fun. The real hero of it all is Angie's dog Snooky and Diane's bizarre roadkill fixation. You really slow down those friend requests when people think they'll be receiving dead animals.

Then they were putting DKult tats on their pets. I think this might be Snooky. But it's not male is it?

Maybe Jen Staggs. She had a Corgi.

Here's a Snooker ATC I made:

HaHa...Awesome! I love that you actually ran over the mail with your car. I cracked up when you said, "2005 Subaru Outback (powered by a flux capacitor)."

Oh the good old days! Sigh (and yes, wiping tear from eye).
