Incoming object from Richard Canard (USA). I wrote a blog on the IUOMA network about is. See for the details: http://iuoma-network.ning.com/profiles/blogs/mail-from-richard-c-from-16-10-2015-ray-j-s-birthday
After asking a first question on http://iuoma-network.ning.com/profiles/blogs/just-a-question I decided to write another note which is now lying to dry and will be ready to send out tomorrow.
This drawing is lying to dry now. Tomorrow it will be ready to be scanned and it is finished. The drawing deals with “Who is MISS NOMA”. Mail from Liverpool, and obviously connections to the USA correspondence network.
This drawing is part of the VIP (Visual Impuls Poetry), but I’ll make sure that Miss Noma gets a copy for sure.
This text can be read clearly, and you will notice the O in connection is missing. Yes, we are missing something here……
Mail from Miss Noma came in today. A reply to a letter I sent to the UK last week. In it some very interesting copy-art in which my letter was used as a background with one of Rocola’s original rubberstamps on it. It is number 3 of 30 it reads.
Off course I got my own rubberstamp from Rocola from the TAM-Archive, and I see I have number 5 of 30. So where are the other 29? Seems Miss Norma has one of them, and that means it is connected to this specific bull…..
For the new observers I made some new photos of the front and back-side of the Bull. Are we still in contact with all these mail-artists?
A very special gift from Rocola (USA)…..
An envelope to the Moma for Jennifer Tobias. After scanning and sending I doscoverd that the postage stamps were missing. The artistamps were on it, but there is place for the original postage too…..
I will see if the envelope goes through or not. Actually an interesting experiment. I included an experimental letter as well for Jennifer. Will see if it reaches her and how she reacts:
There are several of thee envelopes that I have sent out. The individual stamps are made with foam letters, and I use several colors to get the impact. All kind of words are used to describe what we do. Fluxus, Dkult, Mail-Art. IUOMA, and guess what, the MoMa even made an exhibition of all that, not just once, but several times. So that means eventually things do end up in a museum………
And to go back to the basic idea of Mail-Art, it was a way to send art from sender to receiver without having a need for a gallery of museum to show the work. Times they are a changing….
This is a special envelope made for Jude Weimeir in USA. He always sends me the most interesting things, and because he is a composer I thought he might enjoy the circles that form his name and address. Several fonts were used, and protected with plastic and now on its way to San Diego in the USA. Hope it arrives safe and that he enjoys it.
