A new logo for the IUOMA made with the 3D pen on April 29th 2016 by Ruud Janssen
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 April 24th 2016 I made this new IUOMA logo with a 3D pen using PLA plastics (White, grey, black and brown). An experiment to see if you can construct any logo you want and have the object instantly in your hands.
On the backside of the object you can see the structure created with the white PLA which was the basis for the logo. I signed it with IUOMA 2016 which goes easy as well. On a brown wooden background the logo looks like this:
As you can see the plastic of a 3D pen gives an unique structure like the brush with paint. I personally like what ou can do with such a 3D pen and plan to make more objects. The time it too to make this object was about one hour.
Some more Fluxus Words envelopes went out this week. More details about this project you can find on:
The envelopes went out to Heleen de Vaan (Netherlands) and Mars Tokyo (USA) and visualize some new words that got alive today.
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.
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 my initials. Once ready they are selected for specific senders and specific projects.
The theme on the envelopes has always connection to the networking proces. Mostly you will discover a sender and a receiver, or at least a transport system symbolized on the envelope
