D.C. Spaulding - Postcard

D.C. in Lomita CA. U.S.A. who has been "moving art for 34 years" sent this the other day. The reverse reads " The accumulation of mail art is a problem encountered by all correspondence artists. While many archive the mail art they receive, others pass it on, and some throw it away. I hate to throw anything away and my mail art fills my studio until it is moved into the garage."

IM98 Doc.

A tape compiled by Vittore Baroni for the 1998 Incongruous Meetings Mail Art project. Side Two features such people as Roger Radio, Birger Jesch and Charles Francois.

The official IM 98 website says -

unlashed on an unsuspecting planet. You waited enough for it, now here it

in-con-gru-ous adj. (L. incongruus) not congruous
a - lacking harmony or agreement; incompatible.
b - having inconsistent or inharmonious parts, elements, etc.
c - not corresponding to what is right, proper or reasonable; unsuitable;

You have done the hard work already, congressing and lecturing in 1986,
re-congressing and networking in 1992, so relax: NOW YOU CAN HAVE FUN.

Participation in the IM98 is open and free to all: mailartists, netsurfers,
musicians, shopkeepers, shoplifters, aliens, subgenii, rabbits, rabbis,
There is not a single sound reason to meet again but there are all the
incongruous reasons in the world, IF YOU CAN JUST THINK UP ONE: so keep
working-sleeping-consuming or FIND A THEME, ORGANIZE AN IM IN 1998 and take
part in as many IM proposed by others as you wish/can."
