|found duct tape sheets. used that instead. so much easier|
i wanted to do an interactive piece - either a window or a slide. i thought a slide would be the most fun but might have some damage in the postal system but that's the beauty of mail art - you never know what's gonna happen to your piece once you submit to the us postal service. plus since i had to get special postage, you never know what sort of mail person you'll get. my particular person called her supervisor first and asked if it was ok. they were like, what is it? mail art i said. what?? later my postal person said she thought they were pretty. thanks postal person! that means a lot especially since i have the mixed feelings about the piece.
next i had to figure the content. i thought i wanted a sort of 'feel good' quote since it would be a random 'hello' to whoever received it.
|transparent quotes all nice in a pile|
|id card on top|
made pulls out of duct tape:
|right before assembly|
|back side closed.|
|back side open.|
so, i forgot to take pictures of the fronts. i didn't really do anything to them except put addresses. next time when i do this, i'll know postage amounts so i'll have fancy stamps to take picture of. anyway, i'd like to thank hanna for sponsoring this and hopefully my people will enjoy their mail!
