Mickey Mouse Shed

Mickey Mouse Shed detail. Shot around a corner as a tree is in the way. The shed is in rather a sorry state now and suffered from the effects of the weather. Hazel did this project some years ago and the outside of the shed is covered in the mail art she recieved. Not sure who did this bit?

Above is the packet with parts of "sculpture kit" inside with two collaged postcards with instructions on how to put it toegther. Peter describes it as " The east assembly A.1. monument- 1-2-3- Any questions? A photo would be best as reward ( how about one two on this blog? ) and maybe some glue to fix parts 1-2-3 but thats only important before artquakes."

Keith Bates - Stampsheet/Postcard

In a nice envelope yesterday from Keith Bates who says he's hoping for early retirement from teaching this July. Also enclosed some tickets and original ephemera, postcard (below) , pass-along sheet from Eric Langolff and call for mail art show in Finland on the theme of "What Time Is It?"

Also enclosed is a nice "Mailart Heritage" blue plaque print for me and a "Teacher's Tale" which explains his current situation regarding his employment and his hopes for the future. Keith says- " Mail Art is also having to adapt and change, and it is no longer essential for Mail Art to be a wholly snailmail experiance. Indeed, it is paradoxical that many Mail Art projects culminate with website or blog documentation, yet contributions are still only accepted via traditional mail. It is time for the email attachment, emailart, to be welcomed as warmly."
