Here are a couple of postcards that if you could feel them rather than looking that their photos, you’d know that they have some dimensionality. I cut out paper with some thickness to it, as in the first one, or as in the second one, I scattered punch-outs from the little catch-thing on my hole puncher. Some of these circlets might have come from the first postcard, maybe?
These pieces were made in January 2022.
You don’t often think about how a postcard feels to handle it, do you? Maybe it’s something to think about more often when making mail art? Hmmm…..
I like how tactile these postcards are and both suggest something festive. The first one makes me think of something vaguely to do with circuses or party hats and the second one makes me think of confetti on the pavement after a wedding celebration.
Thank you. I like these thoughts. I also think the mood of these two is lighthearted. And I am not sure why. I especially love the confetti idea (because I love tossing confetti myself).
I love the idea of textured postcards!
I like it too. It fees nice to touch them. I feel like I overlook this sense when making art I guess because usually the art is to look at, not to handle. And I realize it does not always have to be like this.
