Collaborative mail art

Keiichi Nakamura

In the present age, one of characteristic things is “uniformity (homogeneity)”. For example, we can drink Coca-cola and look for the Logotype of MacDonald wherever in the world. In addition to such physical uniformity, informational uniformity is also progressing now-a-days. It is accelerated with rapid spread of internet (with Broadcloth band technology). It is not bad for the convenience of our daily life, but we must recognize the one thing in such uniform age. It is “tradition”. Tradition is the original things of each culture and race. Tradition is different from other cultures. Such unique things are survive in the tradition since long time ago. In such uniform age, I think tradition will be thought better by many people in the world, because we will discover that the difference in tradition is precious.

We know that the encounter and meet of foreign and different cultures produce a new and worth culture and things. So, we know many such examples.  For example, Pablo Picasso changed his style after he met the unique sculpture of Africa.  I think he discovered his original style in the interface of African culture and European culture.

The present age has two faces, one is uniformity and another is variety. We have various feelings and thoughts although in the uniform world. I am very interested in the differences of each culture. I met the book written by Shozo Shimamoto at the spring of 1994, and I discovered “mail art”. I am very impressed by the world of mail art and joined the network of mail art. I think the appeal of mail art is in the meeting of different feelings. Mail art is in the feeling to discover the difference of other artists and culture and respect them. When I started to send mail art, I was enjoying many things in my mail box. But I wanted to create new value in the interface of different culture. So, I started to make collaborative collage works. When I am making a collaborative work, I find the collaborator’s space in my work. In other words, I will make my work like “under construction”.

I think that the world is wealthy because our world has many different thoughts. We must love each other’s difference. There aren’t new cultural creations in this century if we don’t have a calmness to love different race and culture. I will be continuing to make collaborations because I love many different feelings.
