Inside the envelope is a sheet of paper, with a letter on one side, covered with photographs, and laminated into one single piece. (As an archivist, I must point out that we do not support lamination as a preservation method. Encapsulation, interleaving a sheet of paper between two sheets of inert plastic, is the allowable alternative. As a mailartist, I must point out that I realize that preservation is not the main issue here; presenting a unique art experience is!)
Qpidoremix's letter discusses his Dutch poetry, which he calls "BarddraB" ("bard" meaning "bard," and "drab" meaning--instead of "drab"--"muddy goo"). He also explains the puns he uses in that poetry, and suggests I check out a site where I can find more "(dutch)(visual) poetry." The example he directs me to is a traditional pattern poem in the shape of a wineglass. Interestingly, this poem is similar in shape (and, I expect, subject) as a very famous French pattern poem. If you click on the link on the bottom of that page, you will find other poems by Qpidoremix, many of which are shaped poems.
On the other side of the sheet, Q has created a design based on the dbqpnacci sequence in the southeast quadrant. The rest of the quadrants, starting with the northwest, are photographs, which Q identifies as "Fountain of youth," "hmbrella" (great title), and "reflection."
