Mailart is Not Dead

There has been some talk about the death of mailart (or its conversion into something else--why, for instance, am I typing all of this right now?), but I don't think I've contributed to that discussion much, since mailart seems pretty lively to me. Luc Fierens sends me a card thanking me for "the inspiring postcards." Then he adds this note:

mail-art is not dead, it is changing form(s) and architexture

And he may well be right, but for now let's just enjoy his collage.

Mail Art has been dead for a long time.

Now we are experiencing Mail Art's charming, goofy decades-long wake, and possibly its reincarnation.
