MAIL ME ART PROJECT
Mail Me Art is a project that has brought together an international community of artists and illustrators, amateur and professional alike, through art in the form of mail. The posted package itself is the work of art and, unlike a traditional letter or parcel, it is intended to be received and admired for it’s own sake. While a normal item of mail fulfils a practical purpose such as delivering a bill, a letter from a loved one, a notice from an employer, or a gift sent by a friend, with mail art the box or envelope becomes the centre of attention instead. Medium without a Message, was chosen as a tagline for the second MMA project to reflect this – the medium of delivery carries no message inside – and I feel that this tagline helps to identify the spirit of the project. The artwork is supposed to be fun and to a certain extent disposable, not an in-depth look into the soul of the artist. I don’t care what anyone says, the most sensational piece of artwork can be created for no reason other than to look interesting. It doesn’t need to have a meaning or a reason behind it, or even carry a message!
Heres the walkthrough of the art in my envelope, hope you like, I have lots of fun doing it.
