In the summer I was abroad for a few weeks, and when I returned I found some very nice pieces of mail-art at the P.O. Box. Two of them came from Heleen de Vaan (Netherlands). One of them contained an original new COW rubberstamp that Heleen has designed and made rubberstamps out. One for herself, and (lucky me) one for the TAM Rubberstamp Archive. I already printed the stamp a few times, and it looks wonderful. The names this time typically connected to Heleen’s network, and that is what the COW stamp is all about. Will use it with pleasure and will see how i can come up with another surprise for Heleen in return.
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.
