Mail Art Bulletin: Dropping In

The latest edition of the Mail Art Bulletin arrived with no indication of the artist’s identity and only a postmark that let us know it was mailed in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts.

This anonymous work — the first we’ve received — is the most digital image, and informed by digital aesthetics, we’ve received. While most mail art lends itself to a handmade and analog quality, here the artist has gone to the other extreme and sent us a digital print on photo paper with no indication of context.

I also appreciated the pattern of 10 and five cent stamps on the envelope, which echoes the patterned geometry within.

If you would like to be considered for inclusion in our Mail Art Bulletin, please send your mail art to:
