MinXus Mail Bag: The Courage to Misspell by WA Rodgers (Takoma Park, Maryland, USA)

Mail-art by WA Rodgers (Takoma Park, Maryland, USA)

Our inside-the-Beltway, Washington, DC-area correspondent WA Rodgers sent us this lovely holiday mail-art that displays her distinctive style and associative mind. This oversized postcard is both deeply thoughtful and tantalizingly cryptic. WA Rodgers’ work this time around is more language-centered than previous pieces received, and we can see some of her themes and preoccupations more articulated. Her message, we think, is wonderful:

Many thanks to WA Rodgers for her wonderful work and contributions to MinXus-LynXus! We will be in touch!

    Thanks, Dan.
    In mail-art sometimes the quality vs. quantity issue rears its head. Maybe this isn’t really about that (how about that one?). But Wendy puts incredible care and thought into everything she sends. That’s been my experience with her. There’s always a revelation. I’m still finding interesting things in this piece.

    Now, Grinch, eh? Well, did you see that shabby excuse for a Christmas tree? You can pretty well assume most DKult controversies are entirely staged. There has to be a loyal opposition.

    While a number of prima donnas have stormed off the MinXus-Lynxus stage “cussin and spittin,” Diane remains a true friend through now over four years of mail-art adventures – that’s the equivalent of 438 regular years! The DKult tree is a manufactured crisis.
