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.
Whenever I get the chance I make some new VIP’s (Visual Impulse Poetry) just to catch the thought that was on my mind. It takes some time to dry for them since they are made with acrylic paint and indian ink. But I like the results…..
If you watch long enough you will find the thought. Maybe you choose another word as I wrote down, but that is all part of these works.
In the year 2014 these envelopes went out. The proces is a complicated one.
- First the envelopes are painted with coloured dots. Each colour needs to dry before the next one comes.
- The address and postage stamps are added
- Some special rubberstamps are added
- The letters are added to the side, and because they are two sided the backside is also marked with these words
Being a pataphysician is quite an experience. Time to share it through a foam rubber stamp made with the letters.
And a first print of the new made rubber stamp goes out to Miss Noma in Liverpool – UK. A special envelope with some of my typical mail-art styles. Included lots of special things, that is not documented with photos.
The spiral was made some decades ago. The special square one too. the concept of IUOMA fits in this world of pataphysics. The connections are made.
