Guerilla mail art project


I just found this site http://www.de-noted.com that is full of images of altered banknotes. So I had to show you this photo of this fiver, as it's got one of my songs written on it, "never give up".


As we move into a more abstract information - based economy, the opportunities for individualising interactions, like handing over altered, worn, mucky cash are lost. It all becomes ones and zeroes. It's not as if money is abolished, it becomes this equivalent information code kind of thing, and the codes get more and more impersonal. So why not strike a blow against the information economy ??? !!!. Take part in this guerilla mail art project :,

Open entry - no returns.


Write a message, or decorate some paper money (any denomination) and send it to:
Mr N Ayers
Earthly Delights
PO Box 2
Lostwithiel
Cornwall
PL22 0DW
UK



And I'll post the best ones on the blog.

Any denomination ? LOL - are you going to be doing the documenting at the bank ?

Fantastic idea though, wish I'd thought of it (I hear the ghost of Ray Johnson howling with laughter).

I'll be diging out some monopoly money for alteration for you soon - meanwhile you might want to check out our mailart projects at Planet Dada mailart
