Mail-art by IUOMA member Lisa Iversen (North Manchester, Indiana, USA)
November 29, 2010 - A third installment of mail-art from Lisa Iversen arrived in my P.O. box last Saturday. I believe this is part of a series she has done using "Gulliver's Travels" as an anchor for collages. Other pieces like this she has done have been posted here at the IUOMA and have generated thoughful responses from recipients. Lisa likes to use old photos that have a documentary feel about them; and she also likes to dig into old books for material, which I appreciate too, This beautifully ripped page of synonyms and antonyms is fascinating and will easily provide a mail-art word for the day (thus we are interactive on several levels!) But all these different power words! I've been pondering these words and thought I had better provide a close up so you can have a look too:
This is great. What A-words do you find yourself responding to? My A List:
All fantastic words that have denotations and connotations. And Lisa sent them to:
Thank you, as ever, for the always interesting mail-art, Lisa.
