I received within some weeks letters and postcards from Richard Canard who is one of the few - still active - mail artists, who really had correspondance with Ray Johnson. He sent me a New York Times article about R.J. from April 11, 1965 and wonderfull vispos with ingenious thoughts about correspondance, mail art, collagemaking.
Collage is the big Hibiscus of mail art & blooms among the refuse & flotsam of that which makes up our daily lifes.
There is no disgrace in making bad mail art but there probably should be.
Surpize, surprize - the curator of the mailbox museum is the postman & to him it´s just another stop on the street.
Richard is our philosopher, isn't he?
