(37) Eva

Loneliness and the internet...

Beautiful and true collages, created by Eva.

I wonder if the people on the envelope (some wellknown, not too good persons) might have been very lonely inside, and therefore acted that bad, to fill that empty inner self??

Eva added an excerpt of a poem by J.V.Foix, Sol i de dol:

Sol, sóc etern. M'és present el paisatge
De fa mil anys, l'estrany no m'és estrany:
Jo m'hi sent nat; i en desert sense estany

O en tuc de neu, jo retrob el paratge
On ja vaguí, i, de Déu, el parany
Per heure'm tot. O del diable engany.

Thank you very much, moltes gràcies, Eva!

  1. I was looking for some old mail art today, and I discovered this one I sent you ages ago: http://mailadventures.blogspot.com/2011/08/out-29-sometimes-i-feel-alone.html

    I wonder it it was sent before you started this project, and why I chose this theme (solitude, I mean, not Smurfs). Well, the second question you are not able to answer, of course :D

  2. I opened this blog (and thus started this project) on the 22th of May, 2011, without mentioning it to anyone. I never have announced it on mail art project websites.
    And it took until summer 2012, before it apparently had been discovered by mail artists who sent me the first contributions.
    So, to reply to your question: Yes and No. You have sent it in August 2011, but then this project wasn't that active.
    Now that I see your blog post in 2011, I wonder why I had forgotten about 'Our Solitudes' at that time, as I did publish the rest of your mail art!..
    (see http://nogmeerpost.blogspot.nl/2013/12/in-smurfs-and-stamps-from-spain.html )

    If you can answer my question (why did I forgot about my own project), then maybe I could have a try to answer yours :-) Q: why did you choose this theme/ A: maybe because 'solitude' is universal, and felt by everyone, every now and then (or more, or less times)?
