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.

Miranda Vissers



Miranda Vissers sent this great mixed-media "Art.s" within the Netherlands.


With apt stamps on the envelop.

For not-Dutch-speaking persons it might be interesting to know: the Dutch word 'arts' means 'medical doctor', while the Dutch word for 'art' is 'kunst'.
So in fact the Dutch 'arts' has nothing to do with Art!
Although the former word for medicine is 'geneeskunst', which literally means 'the art of healing'. Nowadays it's called 'geneeskunde', which means 'the knowledge about healing'!..

More work by Miranda you can see here.
And she has an interesting call for mail art: Collecting.

Thanks a lot, hartelijk dank, Miranda!
(Je zult t.z.t. mijn bijdrage voor het 'Collecting' project tegemoet zien, een boeiend onderwerp!)

Update on August 17th, 2010:
Miranda Vissers also has made an interesting series about Anatomy named 'Gray's Anatomy and Beyond': ceramics (click on this link to see some pieces) and collage art:





Miranda, wederom bedankt, en ik schrijf je (per post!).
