Torn and Taped

When does Jukka-Pekka Kervinen stop and rest? He seems to spend day and night cutting and pasting and twisting texts into new and interesting shapes. (Just check out his "mailXart" blog listed on the right, and follow that to his other blogs.)This time, Jukka has torn up bits of text and used them to create two archipelago-like collages on either side of a postcard. Jukka has, unexpectedly, taped (rather than glued) down each of the pieces of text.

Another unexpectation: Jukka has included a bit of Finnish text (among the English) on this card. I can't recall his ever using Finnish in one of his pieces, though he probably has used his native language from time to time!
