Here are the Mail Art pieces I was sent by a chap called Probe Plankton. He was in the UK somewhere, I can't remember right now where he lived. Here are some collages and a rubber-stamp picture he sent me.
Beardy Freak, Friend of Finland aka Tripod Sardine
In the 1990s I did a lot of Mail Art, which involved a lot of trading 'weird tapes' and other nonsense. Then I started doing computer manipulations under the name Tripod Sardine, and then... I listen to a lot of DIY/avant garde/odd stuff, and enjoy thinking about how strange it all is.
ELECTRONIC COTTAGE is an international magazine where independent artists, musicians, writers and freethinkers share in-depth articles, essays, interviews, tech and gear reviews and tutorials, and much more. EC draws inspiration from the Cassette Culture Revolution of the 1980s, 90s and beyond; Mail Art, Small Press and Zines, Dada, Fluxus, Punk Rock, Hacking, Circuit Bending, Anarchy, and Noise. EC values inclusion, democracy, experimentation, independence and freedom of thought and expression, open-minded exchange, and Community.
From this moment forward the Electronic Cottage website will primarily be an online magazine for the publication of lengthy and in-depth articles, essays, and interviews. For those of you who use Facebook I have created an Electronic Cottage Group, which will be a casual social gathering place of the EC Community, where EC people can meet, share artwork and news of current projects and releases. The EC website will continue as before, and I encourage those of you who do not use Facebook to use the FORUM page here at the EC website to post miscellaneous thoughts and personal updates. The website and this EC Facebook Group are two separate but connected entities of the greater EC Community.
