Laurence Gillot – Artpostaliste  and I are exchanging some mail art from time to time.
Lately she send me a wonderful “Notebook of Curiosities” – a kind of “Cabinet of Wonder” on paper which is full of surprises on each side – and full of told stories.
Tomorrow I´ll show what I send her in exchange.

Laurence Gillot – Artpostaliste und ich tauschen von Zeit zu Zeit Mailart aus. Neulich schickte sie mir ihr ”Notebook of Curiosities” – eine Art “Wunderkammer” in Papierform, voller Überraschungen auf jeder Seite – und voll erzählter Geschichten.
Morgen werde ich zeigen, was ich ihr im Austausch dafür geschickt habe.

Association « Villa Monoyer »

Ferdinand Monoyer war ein französischer Augenarzt (1836 – 1912), der 1872 die Dioptrie für die Maßeinheit der optischen Linsen einführte. Er entwickelte einen Sehtest (die Monoyer-Skala) zur Ermittlung der Sehstärke, der sich bald etablierte und noch heute verwendet wird. In diesem Sehtest hat Herr Monoyer witziger weise seinen Namen verewigt (siehe unten). (Quelle)
Der Verein “Villa Monoyer” (auch auf FB vertreten), widmet sich als kultureller Ort der Erinnerung an Ferdinand Monoyer und der Geschichte der Lyoner Medizin.

Ferdinand Monoyer was a French ophthalmologist  (1836 – 1912) who developed the dioptre, the unit of measurement for vision/ eye sight. He created the Monoyer chart, which is still in use, where every row represents a different dioptre. (Source) Funny little detail: he has immortalised his name in this scala (see below).
The aim of the society  ”Villa Monoyer” (also on FB) is to keep the memory of Ferdinand Monoyer and the Lyoner medicine.

I received some very nice mail form Mano, Petra Lorenz, Volker Lenkeit and Frank Voigt and a very long time ago from some other mail art friends. Now I am very glad that I could create something in response for them: All of them will receive the  ”Aquarius”, a series of 11 original collages with vintage buttons and sewed with machine, as well as “Greetings from …”, another series of 11 original collages. I hope they like it.

Art X Mail – November 2017

I was invited by Frank Voigt to participate again at Art X Mail – Project!
He send me the mail (left), I made my contribution (right side and below) and send it to Kevin Brandtner to fans and sen back to Frank Voigt. and so we created a Collage-Triptych.

Frank Voigt hat mich ernst eingeladen, am Art X Mail Projekt teilzunehmen. Er hat mir seine  Mail Art (links) geschickt, ich habe meine Collage (rechts und unten) ergänzt und an Kevin Brandner gesendet, damit er seinen Teil ergänzen und an Frank Voigt zuschicken kann. So entsteht eine Art Collaboration-Triptychon.
