This is the second S post after yesterday's Solar System.
As promised, here is the follow up from letter N for naked mail art. Most of my mail art goes inside one of my homemade envelopes. And usually they are individual pieces.
Although I rarely collage, I recently sent out a series of 6 collaged postcards with a vehicular theme.
To Adrienne, Thomas and William
To C. Mehrl Bennett, Keith and J.A.D. Media
Did all of them arrive? Sent naked, these must be a bit confusing for the sorting machines.ReplyDelete
I only know about one of them - it made it to Taiwan in very good time.Delete
Apart from thw metro tickets, the text of the main papers reminds me of the APK keuring,ReplyDelete
Of which I found out via wikipedia that the English name is MOT.
And yes, I used some random stuff to make collages (Frips in Belgium was the (poor?) receiver of my best rubbish collage.
I also am planning to make a 'collage of found metal objects', which I had planned to send to Mim for her bicycle mail art project. And the local bike repair man allowed me already to find and grab fallen things on/from the floor in his working space, but I am a little too late to send it... And maybe postage will be 'heavy', too :-)
Yes, a couple of metro tickets (from New York). A good guess on the MOT paperwork, however there is no such thing as MOT in the USA.Delete
Your metal collage sounds fascinating - I hope you will blog it one day.
Well, not only late to send it.. it hasn't even been finished yet!Delete
If one day I'll have finished it I will show you :-) Although I don't know if the scanner will survive the front side :-)
I would definitely take a photo rather than damage the scanner.Delete
Interesting series. I have no guess where the items for the collage came from.ReplyDelete
Thanks. Hopefully they all arrived.Delete
