Mail-art by IUOMA member Moan Lisa (Iowa City, Iowa, USA)
November 7, 2014 - Especially given rumors of a birthday, I thought it would be a great time to share some recent work received from the brilliant and enigmatic Moan Lisa. Moan dropped off the digital grid for a time, but I do not see that the prolific output of snail mail ever lessened. (I was gone from the grid myself in September, and Chris Reynolds (Arizona) is staying true to his vow to return to the underground.)
As you can see, Moan Lisa sent me a series of Post-It Notes in October (among other things). There are probably some more at the bottom of the in-box, but these are representative.
This could be Trashpo; but I am also thinking they are meant to be performance scores, although that doesn’t work entirely. They are indeterminate to a high degree. The fact that they were mailed in a series makes them even more intriguing; it’s possible there is a missing puzzle piece somewhere.
Many thanks, as ever, to Moan Lisa!
