MinXus Mail Bag: Po-card from Jay Block (Bridgewater, Massachusetts, USA)

Jay Block - 1

Mail-art by Jay Block (Bridgewater. Massachusetts, USA)

Our hearts were warmed considerably on this snowy Mink Ranch day as we enjoyed this charming postcard from Mr. Jay Block over yonder in New England.  He takes a textual-visual image approach that we consider very much displays the MinXus-Lynxus aesthetic.  He focuses primarily on the shape of the single letters “a,” “e,” and “u” to build a structure as well as a consideration of these vowels.

In addition to being a good correspondent, Mr. Jay Block gets a special Mink Ranch souvenir for being one of the few (probably only) visionary and forward-looking individuals to acquire MinXus relics for an art gallery as well as academic collection. He is associated (we are not sure exactly how) with the Wallace L. Anderson Gallery at Bridgewater State University where two pieces of Dark wall’s asemic music are on display. Please look through the postings and meet some old and new friends:

Many thanks to Jay Block for the beautiful card and the support for MinXus-Lynxus!

    Miss Becca, dont pay no mind to Dw. He’s harmless & cant help bein a no ‘count as he can be no more than the product of his envirment.

    he wanders down aroun the prison some days looking for Trashpo & gets stars in his eyes.
