Mail-art by IUOMA member Chris Reynolds (Payson, Arizona, USA)
September 29, 2014 - This is the first mail I have received from Chris “Mudhead” Reynolds since his Seers zine was a network sensation earlier this year.
I have come to the conclusion that Chris shares nothing with friends without deep contemplation. Following the workings of his mind and unraveling the message (always profound) are worth the effort and part of the fun.
The relation of “see” to “sea” in this piece creates the occasion to meditate upon the inter-connected nature of everything in the universe, or at least that is how I see it. “See” also reflects Chris Reynold’s fascination with perception. I have long admired his abilities as a visual artist, and now I am developing an even deeper appreciation for his role as a philosopher.
Some IUOMA friends might recall that after the Seers triumph, Chris Reynolds issued a message stating he was going “off the grid.” I took that to mean specifically the internet. I have seen no indication that he has returned to the aether. Indeed, he is probably only communicating with his many friends via snail. So in that case, I will quickly send him a missive. I am thrilled to keep in touch with Chris Reynolds!
