Node Pajomo - USA


Seasonalistic Greetations My Fellow Mailartists!

 

The Winter edition of Node Pajomo is ready for your consumption!

 

This issue is NOT as spectacular as last issue. There is no compact disc nor is the cover that cool heavy card stock.

 

However, there is a ton of mail art contacts, about 40 zine and audio reviews, an awesomely distorted back cover by Thee Haddock and the usual inserts and ephemera all in a delicious 24 page digest format. Yum!

 

If you are in the USA or Canada, you can have shipped RIGHT TO YOUR DOOR for two dollars! If you are anywhere else on this glorious blue green sphere, we ask only a dollar more. We accept cash money from any nation at the going rate as well as unused US Postage Stamps!

 

Subscribers, infoshops and libraries should be seeing their issues any day now if they haven't arrived already.

 

See you in the mail!

 

PJM/ Node Pajomo

COLLAGE BY BLACK DOG PUBLISHING

Collage has been at the forefront of the digital revolution, if not for the final results, then for the method, a way of mixing images and texts via computer manipulation. Like music sampling (hip hop and rap), multiple sources can be "glued" together to create something extremely new and strange. The dadaists seized on the methods employed by Picasso and Braque, and the surrealists made a living out of collage to great and what appears to be everlasting effect. It can be argued that collage is perhaps the preeminent art method of the 20th and 21st centuries. Modern masters like Joseph Cornell and Ray Johnson created some of the most memorable collages, with the later extending his signature methods into pretty much all aspects of his life and art.

Just out is the new fat volume on the subject by Black Dog Publishing / UK : Collage Assembling Contemporary Art. With known experts Sally O’Reilly, Ian Monroe, David Lillington and John Stezaker among the contributors, the hardcover 240 page color book retails for £35.00.

According to Black Dog Publishing: "Collage: Assembling Contemporary Art is a striking and authoritative survey of the history of collage, from its origins through to the work being produced by artists today.

With contemporary artists reclaiming the form, collage is flourishing. From the traditional ‘cut and paste’ method through to digital, three dimensional and installation work, and in the incorporation of contemporary concerns such as environment and commercialism, collage is experiencing an exciting renaissance.

First gaining popularity in the early 1900s, with such pieces as Picasso’s The Dream in 1908 and Still Life with Chair Caning in 1912, collage has proliferated though the ages. From figures such as Kurt Schwitters, to works by the Constructivists, Dadaists, and Surrealists, to 1960s and 70s Pop Art, the form has branched out into a myriad of fine art practice that encompasses assemblage, montage, and décolage. Collage draws together the work of influential artists to contextualize the art being produced today.

Collage features the art of such internationally acclaimed artists as Picasso, Schwitters and Ernst, Hannah Hoch, Marta Rosler, John Stezaker, Richard Hamilton, Layla Curtis, David Salle, Eduardo Poalozzi, Javier Rodriguez, Robert Rauschenberg, David Thorpe, Fred Tomaselli, Matthew Rose and many more.

Birthdaycard before December 12th 2012

I’m going to beg!

That’s right, I have a favor to ask and that’s where you come in.

You see, I’m turning 33 on December 12 but I’ll be spending most of the day alone. I usually celebrate with my boyfriend, but this year Martin will be leaving for his intership at 5am and he won’t be coming back until the next day at 8pm. Louis-Justin will be at school, obviously. My mom said that we could go out to eat together, which is nice, but I’ll be spending the night alone, in my big bed, cold and in tears… OK, I might not cry, but I’m pretty sure I’ll feel a little lonely for my birthday this year.

Julie 30
Me and Louis-Justin on my 30th birthday.

So I had an idea. I asked myself what would be a good way to celebrate my birthday all by myself… and I found it! I want to celebrate it with you!

So would you please please please please please (that’s me begging) write me a little letter or send me a card for my birthday? I’m on my knees…

Julie 32
Me turning 32.

I’ll gather all my birthday mail and will only open it on my actual birthday. And I’ll share photos on my blog, of course!

So if you’d like to send me a little something, please write “birthday mail” anywhere on the envelope so that I don’t open it right away. December 12 is in about 3 weeks, so it should leave enough time for letters and cards to reach me.

Julie 32
My dirty mirror and I on my 32nd birthday.

Oh, by the way, I’m not expecting presents so please don’t send any! Just a card or a note would be perfect.

Here’s my address:

Julie the birthday girl
C.P. 54
St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC
J3B 6Z1
Canada

It would seriously make my birthday a lot more enjoyable to read a little something from my online friends & blog readers. Thank you in advance for making me feel a little less lonely!
