Boomerang - 1998/2000
Mail Art Project: August 26, 1998 - May 1, 2000
114 envelopes, dated and stamped
Living in a store front in Hamilton, Ontario the letter slot on my front door happened to be only inches away from a city post box. The word boomerang was typed onto a sheet of 8 1/2 x 10 standard white paper. And was repeatedly mailed back and forth to me for a period of approximately 2 years. Every time the boomerang came back to me I would open the letter, take the page out, and put it into a new envelope and mail it back to myself again. It would usually take about a week for the letter to travel what was conceptually only a matter of inches. The project ended when the post office eventually lost this letter and the boomerang never came back. All that is left of this project is the accumulated empty envelopes.
