Call for Mail Art: Your Doctor Mail-Art-ified!

What's Your view on your Doctor?

Is he/she a good help to you and do you feel blessed by having this good health care giver? Or are you afraid, angry, bored and/or distrusting whenever you visit your doctor?

Or is he/she invisible to you as until now you didn't need medical care at all?

For this online exhibition I'm looking for mail art which shows your opinion about your doctor. A portrait, a situation, certain objects or whatever, as long as it shows your thoughts and/or feelings about him/her.

All 2D media by snail mail are welcomed, minimum postcard size (10x15 cms), maximum A4 (20x30 cms).

No jury, no fee, no return. All entries about doctors will be published here.

Ryosuke Cohen

This Brain Cell Life Form was sent by Ryosuke Cohen from Japan.
I'm not sure if this large mail art work is meant for the Your Doctor in Mail Art project, but brain cells have something to do with both body and mind, so these important parts of us might be confronted with some physician or psychician one day.

Learn more about the Brain Cell mail art project on this website. For more information about the artist see the website of Ryosuke Cohen.
Ryosuke Cohen has started a new project, Orion Soup, about the beginning and the end of the space. You can put your idea about it on his bulletin board.

Arigato, Ryosuke!

Danke schön, Patrizia! With this funny images these dangerous animals seem rather cute and 'bearable'...
