Subjectivity

Mail art is all subjectivity and when participants attempt to be objective about it there is a feeling of disconnect. Applying methods of analysis to mail art doesn't seem to fit into the idea of personal subjective exchanges of art. I will have mail artists' voices everywhere in the dissertation to serve as illustrations of artists in their social creative acts of exchanging their views even while I am applying methods of analysis to the interchanges. An authentic respect will be the overarching theme of the dissertation, just like it is in the network.

Black glitterless glue

Oh Elmer's I love you. I bought a ten pack of glitter glue and five of the tubes are not glittery and one of the opaque 3-D tubes is black. I made an elephant card for Ennio by drawing the elephant with the black gluepaint and it turned out so great. I should have taken it to school and scanned it but I put it in the mail box already. Elmer's glitter glue is superior to Crayola glitter glue but I heard somewhere they were owned by the same company. Maybe it's just the tips that don't clog. The black stuff has a sheen to it like an oil spill too.
