MinXus Mail Bag: Rebecca Guyver’s Trashbubble sets new postage due record (Suffolk, UK)

Rebecca - postage due - 1

Mail-art by Rebecca Guyver (Suffolk, UK)

Is it a reflection of the global economy? Will mail-art become a pastime only of the affluent due to escalating postal costs? We’re not sure, but we can report an outbreak of postage due notices when we visit the post office these days. This piece from our dear friend Miss Becca has set a new record. Ironically, she has left her beloved Suffolk chicken ranch and is visiting the state of Maine in the USA where she mailed us this Trashbubble. Perhaps she has forgotten how to navigate the USA postal system.

First, profuse apologies for the wretched scan. This is a 3-d, haptic Trashpo piece. We believe it is a Trashbubble (invented by Lynn Radford (Pennsylvania, USA). The contents of a plastic and cardboard container have been removed and replaced with trash assemblages, a very interesting piece actually. We are very pleased to have it at such a reasonable price but due believe that it is, as they say, a sign of the times.

    We’ve added a photo of the trashbibble to the blog Miss Becca kindly sent so all you Tenderfoots can see what it looks like. So lets end all the spittin and cussin. You can see the trashbibble now and you can see the Fluxus art Dw done with it.

    I can definately see the spirit (of DW?) in the collab – much better really. Divine intervention, or DW’s (negative) cosmic energy is definatley a foil for my nostagiac ‘prettiness’.

    If it weren’t for all the cussin and spitten. The Empress set this tone. Her English weren’t never the best butt somewhere she learnt to cuss like a sailor callin Dw a F__R and them a M____R afore she stormt out agin. Now Dw has got his confidences back.
