“The Eye Catcher’s Friend” – 3D work by Ruud Janssen

2016-07-09 18.25.42

“The Eye Catcher” was the name of the object I made last week with a MiRywell 3D pen.  I used several colours of ABS plastics to make it. Today I made “The Eyecatcher’s Friend”, another object made with the 3D pen, this time black, grey, white, brown, gold and Beige PLA plastics. The connection is there since the first object has the nodes to detect, and the other object is sending all these signals.

Will try to make a few better photos when there is sunlight.

Mail-Art to Magreet Dolman – Amsterdam

A historic piece of Mail-Art. A small soft plasti ball, sent to Magreet Dollman, a moderator of the national TV who did a live show and reacted to comments. I sent her this piece of mail-Art and she showed it and commented on it on National TV. Milions saw a piece of mail-art, bur probably forgot. I documented the sending, so that is what is left.

Letter from 1993

Letter that John Held Jr. found in his archives and published on Facebook. It shows a photo taken by Jenny de Groot (Hengelo, Netherlands) when I was wisiting her and we were writing some letters to mutual mail-art friends. I copied the photo and use d it as writing paper as you see above. Ove of the letters went to John Held on February 1993.  Nice to see this back again. The stamp used below was a logo designed by Lon Spiegelman (USA) made in 1990, which I tranferred into a rubberstamp. Lovely memories and that statement is still true.
