Soon the new cards will be ready and will be sent out. The order went out just now. This blogposting is the only posting about the cards I will be doing, so eventually we will see what the sending out of the cards will bring. There is a long history about the membership cards for IUOMA. It started back in 1988 and not every year a card was produced. Also.. Read More
The last decades I have been sending out lots of acrylic painted envelopes. The proces of making them goes in various stages. Each color is added as a batch to several envelopes where I constantly decide what there will be added to the envelope. Once ready each envelope gets a date stamp with my initials JR and the year of production. So the new envelopes all get a 2016 behind.. Read More
In 2 weeks I will be doing two workshops on the use of the 3D pen for two groups of teachers at a college. They will be guided into the possibilities of using the new tool in their education, but it could also be fun. I made the letter A with black PLA plastic, and the golden cage was made lateron as a cube surrounding the letter A. I used.. Read More
Today this complete set went out. More to follow since I started a new set that is dated 2016 and will go out somewhere this year as well. On the backside I placed the stickers made of the score from 1988.
Four new Fluxus words were painted on envelopes. They are now sent out to some active mail/artists, so they will find the word quite soon. If they don´t know what to do with it, they could visit: http://fluxuswords.blogspot.nl/ Because that is a blog I made to give people an overview of the Fluxus Words Score, and the results that it has brought so far.

All in the VIP style where I write a Visual Impulse Poem (VIP) on the paper, but I guess the viewers won’t be able to read it too. They need to search for the lines and the message.
Just bought a set of new pens, Rotring 2000 isograph, with several types of nibs. It means I can work faster with indian ink and have more control on the broadness of the lines I use in my work. I normaly use the traditional nibs, since that works the best, but for design, these pens are very good indeed. Teset days I worked on cleaning them and testing them. One.. Read More
A few new VIP’s (Visual Impulse Poetry) were made on the special day 29-2-2016.
For people doing research, please notice that the old IUOMA website is still available. I started the website in 1996 when the HTTP protocols first were used to make the WWW websites. It grew from there and was completely typed by hand.
