Visuals at the IUOMA Blog

As a kind of change I have been adding lots of visuals at the list. besides the e-mails with visuals I got in, also some scans from normal mailing that I got today. A lot of information, and I am currious to know how the visitors digest this. Are people interested in getting a completer view of what my life is all about. Well, the word "all" is a bit confusing of course. Some things I do not write in this blog. I know this is a public medium, and some thought still are quite private.

Ruud, I think it might be
very interesting to see some
"behind the scenes" photos or
graphics on the making of some
of your projects...a documentation
of sorts.

Give me a hint of what direction you are thinking....

It would be brilliant to see your
documentation of the growth of mailart
from your perpective & experience. I read
an interview you did with Mark Greenfield
in in 1996, in which you mentioned the
'beginnings'...TAM starting in 1980 but
your hookup with the network in really
begging in 1983; develop-
ment in the Netherlands, then worldwide;
from a scientific view, the growth of
participants. Pictures and comments regarding
these different periods would be intriguing.
Because you have played such a tremendous
roll in communication of this artform,
and have promoted "control over ones art",
I think the mailart world would appreciate
this "autobiography" of it's history.
Did that help? It deserves to be done
at some point, I believe.

I realize much of this information is out there,
checking your different sites...but the challenge
here is can it be condensed, with only milestones
shown, from behind the scenes from your viewpoint.
