I was on your websites and they all looked great. I am doing an art piece on spiritually and religion. I would like to use mail art to produce a body of work. I was wondering if you had time to answer to following question.
"What does spiritually mean to you?"
Also if you had any ideas that i could use i would love to hear them.
Thanks a bunch.
My name is Ramon Lenherr and I am a graphicdesinger from St.Gallen Switzerland. I am studying visual communication at our school of art and I need some material for a non commercial schoolproject. It's a work over Designers around the world. Could you please send me some pictures of you, your office and several things. I‘ve got examples attached in the PDF.
It would be great, if I could work with real content and not like in the most cases with faked ones. If you are interessted in the result of my work, just let me know. So I will send it to you by email.
I would be happy and grateful, if some of you would spend some minutes to help me in this project.
Kind regards Ramon
Thank you very much

The night of 22 to 23 August 1791, in Santo Domingo (today Haiti and the Dominican Republic) saw the beginning of the uprising that would play a crucial role in the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade.
International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition is intended to inscribe the tragedy of the slave trade in the memory of all peoples. In accordance with the goals of the intercultural project "The Slave Route", it should offer an opportunity for collective consideration of the historic causes, the methods and the consequences of this tragedy, and for an analysis of the interactions to which it has given rise between Africa, Europe, the Americas and the Caribbean.
Submissions from mail artists throughout the world in the project

and Silent Auction Fundraiser
Exhibit: March 5-14, 2010
Requesting your original mail art for display and sale to raise funds for The Claremont Forum's Prison Library Project, which sends thousands of books free to inmates throughout the country. Hundreds of volunteers package books (donated to the Project by our local community), which are then mailed in response to inmate letters requesting reading material while incarcerated. For many years, The Claremont Forum received these requests in hand-illustrated envelopes created by the prisoners who sent them. It is in this tradition that we present POSTMARKED as our very appropriate fundraiser. Please join us for this international event!
Please send submissions of mail art of any size and medium to:
Prison Library Project
112 Harvard #303
Claremont CA 91711 - USA

The HouseLandscape artist Kane Cunningham has used his credit card to buy a house that is about to fall into the sea.
A bungalow at Knipe Point in Scarborough, North Yorkshire – near the scene of the infamous Holbeck Hotel cliff collapse 16 years ago has been condemned after a fresh landslip. Cunningham states:
‘I’ve bought a house that will be the next one to fall over the cliff. It feels like I have no choice. I’m going to rig the house with cameras and film the last sunrise before nature claims its bounty.
‘It’s the perfect site-specific installation - a stark reminder of lost dreams, financial disaster and threatening sealevels. It’s global recession and global warming encapsulated. This little house is feet away from the edge of thecliff – it can go at any moment. The idea is to create an artwork on a scale never been seen before in North Yorkshire and to stimulate within the imagination of the public the idea that this house falling into the sea can become a work of art. If the aim of art is to stimulate discussion and debate on issues, then surely this will get people talking.'
Cunningham best known for his landscape paintings said 'My work has always been about understanding the social and political context of landscape; the house is just a development of these ideas'.
Cunningham who bought the house on his credit card for £3,000 said, 'the house was worth over £150,000 two years ago, now it is worth just a fraction of the original price. The purchase of this house on my credit card is a deliberate financial transaction suggesting the link to credit, sub prime mortgages, property ownership, debt, loans, the financial markets, property speculation, boom and bust'.
One idea, which has emerged recently as a consequence of the work, is to invite people to send me letters on any subject, these will be pinned to a wall as part of the artwork, then destroyed as the house disappears. So who knows what they may contain!
This is called the ‘Last Post’, as the address will one day cease to exist and so it’s a rare opportunity to participate in an original and unique work of art.
Finally 'The House' in many ways epitomises the decade, of unprecedented greed, of lies and deceit, the art market, credit debt, war and conflict across the world. It’s a symbol that can be interpretive in many ways.
The timing of the press release is deliberate, just after Copenhagen and just before Christmas when all focus is on the home, when families come together and when we all reflect upon things we feel are important.
Just after Christmas we will have a webcam to see the sunrise and possible destruction of the house as it goes over the cliff, so please visit the site again to see new work being produced as I go along. To include video, digital photographs, paintings, prints, sculptures and site specific work within the house as I physically deconstruct the building over the next few weeks.
Send mail art (no deadline, but time is obviously of the essence) to:
The Last Post
20 Knipe Point
North Yorkshire, England
