MinXus Mail Bag: From the Netflix series by liketelevisionsnow (Tamworth, New Hampshire, USA)

ltvs - 5.30.2014 - 1

Mail-art by liketelevisionsnow (Tamworth, New Hampshire, USA)

We’re doing a long spring cleaning here at the Mink Ranch after a horrendous winter and a busy autumn. As a result, we are revisiting some FAB mail received that has not until now been properly documented, archived or acknowledged for way too long. Here is one such example from our enigmatic friend and correspondent liketelevisionsnow who must now be also at last emerging from winter in New England.

On the net, liketelevisionsnow is an elusive and mysterious presence, very similar to many Neoists we know, although ltvs has no connection to Neoism as far as we know. In the real world, he must be a force constantly in motion. We have followed his work for several years and observed a steady flow of texts, publications, visual arts, music and videos. All of it we highly recommend. liketelevisionsnow also somehow manages to be a consistent Eternal Network pillar with clever and compelling mail-art, unique mail-art calls and blogging.

He sent us this original collage (above) from his Netflix Series. liketelevisionsnow writes: “The series comprises take-offs from Netflix envelopes. Please accept this as my thanks for the kind reviews of my work you have done.” We are thrilled to have an original, and what ltvs does not mention is how we have at times absolutely badgered (or minked?) him to send us work. Are these reviews that we write? Perhaps partially. Our regret is that we can never do enough for the remarkable artists we meet through the network and the incredible work we receive. A real joy in all this for us is to be part of a living, participatory culture rather than an official dead culture prescribed by institutions and corporations. Here is some further documentation on the collage:

Many thanks for the original collage, ltvs.
