writing vs painting

These musings on the process of writing about mail art are the result of years of thinking hard about mail art, mail artists, technology, and network dynamics. Writing about anything and doing it are two different things, of course. My writing is distilled text that flows from extended participant observation of the mysteries of the distributed community in which I create my art. It's the nature of research to try to understand the dynamics of a system and I intend to do my best to figure out the effects of the Internet on the mail art network and consider the implications of those effects for a community I love.
