Isabelle Paillard, a self portrait on a CD.
Dear Isabelle, I am going to ask you about this in a postcard, but i will use the blog as well. It seems that your work lost something on its way from France to me - the stamp. Did you by any chance scanned your work before sending it to me? If yes can you send me your scan for the archive? If not, do you think you could send me the exact stamp you've used on this work, so that i could put it back?;)
While having the technical problems i mentioned before, i kept browsing the intnet, and i found a number of similar projects. One was an older project by Zenon from Spain.
It was a mail-art self portrait project on a very specific media... on old CD! You can see the documentation on the web page above. I wrote to Zenon and asked him to bring his project to the exhibition I am planning. I hope we could unify our projects... So it is quite interesting that I got this CD-selfportrait from Isabelle just now!;)
Therere is also another ongoing project of Ruud Janssen, here it is. Ruud is asking for photographs of mail artists:
