About a month ago, I went to my home mailbox to retrieve, well, my mail and lamented that all I ever receive via snail mail is bills, solicitations for donations, wedding invitations and junk mail. More interesting or personal mail never comes through snail mail anymore — courier, sometimes, email, often, but never the US Postal Service. But seeing that is 2011, I didn’t keep this observation to myself and broadcast it via tweet in an effort to find a camaraderie with others whose life was just as junk mail filled as mine but instead of finding people to commiserate with about the state of mail I found something else.
My twitter buddy @lunapark suggested it’s a case of getting back as much as you give out to the universe — oy, she’s probably right, I don’t really send much in the way of interesting mail anymore.
But then, to my surprise, a number of artists on Twitter offered to mail me things. And then it occurred to me, I had forgotten about the pleasures of @hragv yeah, but you got good mail art right? — Jonny Gray (@Bungy32) March 20, 2011 Yes, I got awesome mail art. Thanks, Jonny!
