Mail art is and has been made up from a mad combo of fun and
mutual respect. The fun part fuels and tempers the
respect. very good balancing act. why does it work so well?

What kind of mail art do you do?

postcards and dissertation

Right now I'm writing a dissertation on mail art and studying the effects of the Internet on the Mail Art network. I do watercolor postcards with rubberstamps. I like to do mail art about mail art and recycle classic mail art images and impressions from rubber stamps into my watercolors. I read in your journal that you do deco. Sounds fun.

Re: postcards and dissertation

Your mail art sounds interesting. I was wondering if decos fall under "mail art" since it is mailed from person to person? :)

What are your findings about the internet's effect on mail art? I would think it has helped it a lot?

The effects are many and varied. I'm still looking at my interviews to identify patterns that mail artists are experiencing. I'll post the URL when I have the whole research project done. Within the year. I think decos are mail art - what do you think? Since mail art is a grass roots system, you are naturally as much an expert as anyone:-)

Yes, I do think that decos definitely qualify as mail art. There are some gorgeous ones that have come through my hands lately. Sadly, I am not their final resting place! ;)
