Robin C rozier did a project where he asked people from the network to share a memory of a specific day and return it to him. In return you would get the memory of someone else. I have tried to collect soms of the memories back, and have saved them in digital form (see above). Also I collect the originals, and have documented my collection on:
Some originals are in someone’s elses collection, and I only have a B&W xerox of it. The dates and memories are now scattered arround the globe. But it all fits together in a big large network that was active in the last decades when Robin Crozier was doing this project.

Some years ago I was doing research on where the chinese mail-artists are? With the upcoming economy some years ago a new generation of mail-artists would arise for sure and I wanted to stimulate that a bit. So these pamphlets went out and I also made a special website for the process at:
Where I documenten the things that happened and were sent and received, It brought some new interesting contacts and even some publications and exbibitions. But with the chinese recent financial crises, the contacts just vanished and all there stil is are the postings and papers…….
Worked on 4 special enveloppes this day which went out just now. They fit is a series I made and one special envelope for Canada…..
Enveloppe for Richard Canard just to keep contact. Also he will turn 75 next month, so want to keep his mailbox filled till a special event takes place.
In Chicago Keith A. Buchholz has organized a special project in collaboration with the fluxfest 2016, so I am sending him this envelope for that NOW.
And another enveloppe for the Miss Noma Fun Club at the addres of De Villo Sloan. We will see how that developes. The search for more details on Miss Noma continues.
And below a special envelope for Mailarta in Canada. He/She sent me a bunch of goodies and I am returning the signed artistamp portrait for the collection.
On 21-2-12 I made these sheets and passed them out. Not a lot happened. I still had some lying here and pass them on now and then. Suddently on facebook they revived. Especially this version:
“E” from France started adding on one and published it on some Facebook groups. It was piched up by the Mail-Art network on Facebook, and started to be added and passed on to. It resulted in lots of versions which are now circulating and are being added too. I started to collect them now, and probably make a video from that to show the diversity of such a Facebook wave….
Again two more brain cells from Ryosuke Cohen in Japan arrived in Breda, Netherlands. Number 942 (above) and 943 (below). The project continues since 1985 and 31 years later the 1000 th issue is coming in sight. With an issue each 10 days this still takes a long time….. But we enjoy every new issue that brightens the world with all these icons from a mail-art network.
