I'm now a corporate mailartist, planning out my work before I head off on my business trips.
Today, I took a selection of my found cream postcards (upon which I'd already stamped an image in red), added a sticker to the back celebrating the New York State Archives's twenty-five years of excellence (as of 2003), and added a small note to each correspondent, and I had myself a card to mail out.
The image I stamped on the front was a "stamplage" (an eraser carving carved out of a collage of an image and added text). I made only a few of these ever, but they are some of my favorite visual poems, especially since I ca, n stamp out new originals of the poem at will.
