Here is my response sent in the mail to Chile:
New Means in Art/New means in Mail Art
Artistic Action Blog - honoria
One new means in art and technology is the artistic action blog.
Blog is short for "Web Log".
Web = World Wide Web, the Internet
Log = dated record of activities such as a diary
Artistic Action Blog = record of artistic activity posted on a blog
Here is a print of recent entries in my artistic action blog for the F5 – ReLoad call.
I started an artistic action blog after studying discussions on several Mail Art message boards on the Internet.
I chose a blog community that supported incorporating images with text. I record some of my mail art activities as well as my thoughts on art processes on a blog at honoriartist.livejournal.com.
There is also a livejournal mail art community www.livejournal.com/community/mailart
An artistic action blog is simultaneously a closed and open system. It is closed and personal because the blog reflects only my individual activities and written thoughts. The blog is also an open system because it is on the Internet and does not require a password to read it and to see the images.
The simultaneous private and public nature of the artistic action blog is a new technological reflection of mail art and the Mail Art Network. In mail art the closed system is the one-to-one exchange of mail that happens within an open system of international exchange and exhibition of mail art. Mail art’s constant exchange creates a vast and always changing network that now uses the Internet as a means of display and distribution. The Internet is being loaded into the Mail Art Network’s systems by mail artists.
