This is a piece of mail art I dedicated to the HVV (Hamburg Transport Association). When I was an editorial intern at a small radio station in Hamburg I used to go to work by metro every day.
I saved all my tickets for this mail art collage because I really like how the silvery stripe on the tickets reflects the light. The finished collage you see in the picture above went to Douglas Galloway from the US in reply to his “Beaumont Klick Klack“.
So do you go to work using public transportation?
There are over 50 places on this planet named Beaumont in one fashion or another. Seven of them are in the US. One right down the road from where mail-artist Douglas Galloway lives.
I guess, this most interesting-looking piece of art he sent me was inspired by this very township because it’s called Beaumont Klick Klack:
I wonder what exactly the klick klack is referring to? Maybe the klick klack of women’s feet in high heels hurrying along the concrete sidewalks of Beaumont… okay, silly thought! – only Douglas really knows : )
Happy friday! It’s almost the weekend – whee!
