Mail to De Villo Sloan in USA. This time with the ‘pataphysical connections too. On the envelope the first logo I made, and inside some treasures for him to find.
When you want to know more about ‘Pataphysics, the first thing to do is research. Found a goog book after all the Internet documentations, and started to read. Yes, it is a useless guide if you want it to be. Just discovered a lot of links to what I do right from the start.
Details of the book:
In the year 2014 these envelopes went out. The proces is a complicated one.
The logo for Pataphysics and IUOMA is now also printed on paper, and the concept goes now arround the world. This envelope goes to Ryosuke Cohen in Japan. He might use it on its brain cell, but you never know which element he uses…… Another envelope goes to Heleen de Vaan in the Netherlands.
Above a glimpse of the complete envelope. It is going out tomorrow. The last day of the month November. Another year is coming to an end, and the next one comes in rapidly…..
Here are some samples of Fluxus Words on envelopes as they were sent out in 2008. Not sure what happened to each individual word, but I documented a lot of them on:
The words themselves are part of the Fluxus score I wrote in 1988 and goes like this:
And the score itself produced some famous words for sure. To get the basics, IUOMA was one of that words, and now that word has grown in meaning quite a bit……
Again mail from Miss Noma in UK. This time the envelope shows another identity, and that ths the name of Arthur Cravan Jr.
The statement is obvious Arthur Cravan is NOT a mail-artist , but a Post-Artist. And what to expect in the enveloppe. When I opened it I discoverd there were again envelopes in it all addressed to me but with slightly different names:
Nine to be precise. Also a special number with quite some symbolic to it. I already opened one of the envelopes and discoverd the empty stampsheets for the TAM Rubberstamp Archive seem to have been returned:
Will open the other envelopes tomorrow. Already documented all the envelopes front-side and backside, since there is a lot of play on them as well with names and rubberstamps. Will see what is hidden inside the envelopes…….
