Years ago at IUOMA there were discussions about whether to analyse mail art or whether to let the work speak for itself. It turns out I (shamelessly) like a story. I see narrative even where it doesn't exist. I suspect my narrative is simplistic because I don't remember things for long and can't alude to much, but with Matt's mail art I saw something immediately . What I see is a cosmonaut bound for space and some exquisite planet, possibly made of green cheese. Matt's gorgeous turquoise mixed media piece is made on the back of a rapidly cut cardboard castoff - a trashpoem, for sure.
