Selections from the Geo Graphic Mail Project, 2012-2013

Geo Graphic Mail Project
In 2012 I received a pile of postcards and postcards books picked up at various art museums. Many of the paintings on the postcards were nudes, from Mel Ramos, to Picasso to Hopper as well as some vintage erotic images. It all lead to a silly idea. I thought I would "censor" the images with bits of maps. The idea was to create geo graphic mail or was it geographic mail?
In November 2012 I mailed out the 50 postcards to various friends and artists.

The cards have made it around the U.S. and around the world to countries including Puerto Rico, Portugal, Holland, Hungary and Germany.


Round 2 - Dutch Treats
In December 2012 another series was mailed out with some repurposed Vermeer postcards.

Round 3 - Hopper-ing into the New Year
In January 2013 another series was mailed out with some repurposed Edward Hopper postcards.

Round 4 - Fortunate Mail
In January 2013 another series was mailed out with some repurposed 1970's postcards from the People's Republic of China and my cache of fortune cookie fortunes.

Round 5 - I've Got an Island in the Pacific
In February 2013 the next series was sent out. These used reproduction postcards of Athletic Model Guild images from the 1950's and various Pacific Islands from a 1952 National Geographic Map.
