Mail-art by Jude Weirmeir (San Diego, California, USA)
November 29, 2014 - Thanks go out to San Diego-based musician Jude Weirmeir for sending me a copy of his a-mazing Subscription Opus zine (Issue 56 Maze Music). I was hitherto unaware of Jude Weirmeir and this FAB project where mail-art, performance and event scores (along with other elements, no doubt) seamlessly intersect in classic yet inventive intermedia fashion.
Subscription Opus Issue 56 is printed on a large, single sheet of heavy paper folded and sliced to create a total of 16 panels. This format allows for easy passage through the postal system. When the recipient opens the missive, one side (or eight panels) reveals the a-mazing “Maze Music”: an intricate and totally fascinating work. A section is shown above.
The remaining eight panels are devoted to colorful prints and relevant information. I think this (above) is Jude Weirmeir.
The piece required no envelope:
I am thrilled to have this wonderful zine that so skillfully connects music, performance and mail-art.
