December 17, 2019 - Despite starts and stops, my Investigative Mail Art series on the current add & pass craze in the Eternal Network continues (now headquartered at the Glam Faction blog).
I have already documented Magda Lagerwerf's "Nine Patch" add & pass project, and apparently many artists have seen the sheets. Magda Lagerwerf kindly sent me a completed "Nine Patch" sheet!
Add & Passers know that seeing (or receiving) a completed sheet is fairly unusual. In online discussions, participants often inquire about the fate of finished sheets. Some sheets do close the circle and return home. However, I wrote a blog about "Ghost Ship" A&Ps that circle the world aimlessly for years, even decades!
I would speculate the fate of most A&P sheets is unknown. That's why I believe it is important, if possible, to share completed sheets online. Many participants are involved and curious about the finished product and other contributors. Now a closer look:
Deepest thanks to Magda Lagerwerf for creating such an original concept and curating the project so faithfully.
