Cardboard Club Shreds by Robert Ridley-Shackleton (Oxford, UK)

RRS - 4.3.2016 - 1

Mail art by IUOMA member Robert Ridley-Shackleton (Oxford, UK)

April 4, 2016 - Robert Ridley-Shackelton has been generous indeed sharing his work with me, and I have noted its affinity with Trashpo. Today I am pleased to be able to share the contents of a particularly compelling envelope received via the Cardboard Club.

And do not miss a visit to the actual Cardboard Club:

The components of this work are, I conjecture, interactive, an existential or de-signified puzzle. The classic Ridley-Shackleton shreds (above) were loose in the envelope and required me to arrange them in some pattern to present a suitable scan. Similar pieces in the hands of others more creative and talented have resulted in outright collaborations, including the now legendary Ridley-Shackleton collabs with Queen of Trash Diane Keys (Illinois, USA).

And in keeping with my dedication to in-depth coverage, here are even more RRS shreds:
