Karnival of Trash Mail Art Call: Organic Asemics by Jan Hodgman (Anacortes, Washington, USA)


Mail art by Jan Hodgman (Anacortes, Washington, USA)

I am not suggesting this compelling card by visual poet Jan Hodgman is Trashpo, but the piece did arrive during the Karnival of Trash call. So I am pleased to include it in the greatest (and now longest) show on earth. I know Jan Hodgman primarily as a valued participant in the IUOMA asemic writing group. The story behind the composition of this work, however, is very interesting and gives it a certain Trashpo vibe:


Dare I call it Weedpo? Or Herbpo? Or Compo(st)? What is in a name anyway? It is a beautiful piece.

Thanks as ever to Jan Hodgman!
