American Gun Goddess

Here's the latest take on America and guns from mail art badboy Michael Hernandez de Luna. The Chicago, Illinois-based artist collages his works digitally in creating sardonic fake postage stamps that stick a stick in the most sensitive places, and he does it all with style and panache. Once printed, all hell breaks loose. Like Michael Thompson, Michel Hosszù, MHdL is one of the stamp champs. MHdL is also the curator of the extraordinary 2005 stamp art show, Axis of Evil: The Secret History of Sin. (I was happily included!)

Click on the image to enlarge.



I invite you to participate in my first and small mail-art projet, which is focused on a theme that I like very much, a theme about which I am, at the same time, keen on and worried about: the sea.A clean sea, a green sea, a blue sea, a sea without overfishing, a sea for its dwellers, a sea for everybody, a sea to enjoy. No pollution. No exploitation. No globalization.

Object Object

Object:Object Project is looking for submissions!

Object:Object is a project that hopes to examine the process of translating verbal communication to visual communication while connecting all of the participants involved through personal and heartfelt narrative.

Please help!

Write a detailed description of an object that you own or have owned which has particular sentimental value for you. Please describe the objects structure with as much detail as possible - be specific about it's size, shape, colour and other necessary aesthetic elements. If you like, include a short written narrative about how you came to own the object or a short story of why this object is of special value to you. Please do not submit photographs or other visuals of the item.

The written descriptions collected will be remade in sculptural form by an artist participant. Artists will use only the written description, with no visual reference, to recreate these objects. The first showing of completed pieces will be installed in an upcoming collateral event for the Open Engagement Conference in Regina, Saskatchewan this October, 2007.

Submissions are being accepted now. objectobjectproject@gmail.com.

Draw me a sheep

True Red

This was a postcard I made while thinking about hurricane Katrina and seeing "red" at the failure of the American government to help it's own citizens in a time of need. The insensitivity of the White House during the time roiled me, but it was also a nearly predictable response. Over the past few years, I've had the "opportunity" to collect images from some medical procedures I've had. I haven't fully worked these things into as many situation as I can. "The Biggest Pain Wasn't In My Neck" came from the fact that it was my heart that hurt. Another surprising thing in the wake of Katerina were the "hate inspired" emails I saw circulating that continued to bash the plight of the citizens of New Orleans based on the incidentals of race, income, and politically inspired insensitivity.

Real Correspondence

a mail art bulletin of the ethereal open network

october 2007 – thirtieth anniversary edition

Whew, this is a rather busy “mail art year” for me! I have just finished mailing out three issues of my Arte Postale! magazine (# 90, 93 and 93, while # 91 was delivered at the end of June to coincide with one year after the loss of my friend Piermario Ciani), for a total of over two hundred envelopes. And to round off my thirtieth year in the mail art network, a sixth and final project is in the wings (see ULTIMATUM! invite below). It was indeed a rather extravagant investment of time and money even for my own intense correspondence standards, but I really wanted to test the state of health of the “ethereal” postal network and my own limits within the medium.

The results have been very encouraging, with a large participation and successful public presentations of the “art hats” and Ciao, Paolina! projects, plus the children workshop at the MACHmit! Museum in Berlin was very well received by organizers and audience alike. Mail Art may be an “old horse”, but for me this form of expression still represents an enlightening anticipation of a wider “paradigm shift” in culture, that social commentators are just starting to acknowledge (see for example the essay Convergence Culture by MIT Professor Henry Jenkins, New York University Press, 2006): a collective participation in the production and fruition of “transmedial” works, the merging and sublimation of individual visions in a open networking perspective (giving life to what William S. Burroughs and Brion Gysin called a “third mind”). Thanks if you participated in any of the projects, and do keep in touch, much more is yet to happen!

…but wait, my 30th Anniversary in mail art (1977-2007) is not over yet! There is still time for one final project, fittingly titled:


Wars, terrorism, climate changes, pollution, over-population, epidemics... With the complicity of the mass media, we are kept in a constant state of alarm, living every day of our life under the sword of Damocles of a never-ending series of ultimatums.

What I request is simply the design for a rubberstamp in black and white inspired by the theme “Ultimatum!”. I need an original or good print on paper, any size, no half-tones or grey areas, no computer files only and please stick to the theme. The deadline is Halloween, November 2nd 2007. All the participants will receive a free catalogue (Arte Postale! 94).

Mail to my usual address: Vittore Baroni, Via C. Battisti 339, 55049 Viareggio, Italy
