37) Addicted to Mail-Art?

I know that some people stumble onto mail-Art, explore it. Play the game, and after a while (sometimes a few years) stop and leave. Some stay, and have become addicted to the exhange of art, ideas and the community involved.

Why does one get addicted?

(the images below I got by mail as a reaction to this question.)

36) How do you feel the Internet will effect the future of mail art-will it have positive or negative affects?

35) Do you believe that computer generated mail art is a more unclear form of mail art?

34) Why do mail artists use the computer as a tool to create mail art, doesn't this abandon the fact that it is mail art?

33) Thesis on Mail-Art

Over the years several persons have done research on the subject of mail-art. Some of the results I have in my collection. I am quite interested in reading these results. If someone has a thesis (or even has written one him/her-selve) I would very much like to read it. Maybe some readers can also direct me to sources. I know of some works (and have read them), but welcome any new texts to explore.

I know of works by Michael Lumb (UK), Carola van der Heijden (NL), Honoria (USA). Still looking for the text written by Donavan (UK).

32) How does one stop with Mail-Art?

Stopping with Mail-Art sometimes seems so easy. Just don't send anything out, and the mail to you will dry up. Some even send mailings out to the network telling everyobdy they stop. Some even had to stop because of finacial problems or other problems. Did somebody stop somewhere in the past and would like to explain why?

31) Is the Father Christmas a mailartist?

Letter that my children received from the Father Christmas in response to the list of gifts that they sent to him.

30) The older Mail-Artists Generation

Is seems that the 'older mail-art generation' isn't active on The Internet that much. Do they still send out mail-art and avoid the Internet. Did they stop? Did only the Computer-users survive the Internet-changes? What happened?
