Projects of Josh Ronsen
|I have been involved with Mail Art since 1995 when I discovered it in Dan Plunkett's N D magazine. I became N D's Mail Art editor for the last couple of issues.|
|Music and sound art are my primary artisitc passions, but I receive great satisfaction from the dozen or so Mail Art projects I do every year. Assembly Zines are my favorite projects.|
|Below are projects I have organized and a few projects I have participated in. Many of the projects I organize are published as/in my music publication Monk Mink Pink Punk.|
- NEW PROJECT: Tiny Art Exchange — contact me for an invitation
- REVISING THE CENTURY — 41 artists helped me alter photos of the 20th Century.
- TINY BOX. 50 people submitted tiny multiples of 25. These were placed in tiny handmade boxes.
- MAIL ANT — Some 33 artists sent me ant art. These were turned into a poster. I have a few leftover copies available for trade for interesting publications.
- TACMA — in 2005 I founded the Texas Association of Concerned Mail Artists. We have done 2 group projects and are working on a third.
- Huxley story mutation
- The Pierre Boulez Project
- First Words Project — I asked for the first words people heard after getting my request. The responses were put in word balloons over ants.
- Monk Mink Pink Punk #8 — a collection of 3 Mail Art projects, “music heard in dreams,” stories using 39 words from a Lawrence Durrell novel, examples of “Josh Ronsen” written by numerous artists, friends and musicians.
- Index Card project — I sent card catalog/index cards to 20 mail artists. 4 returned them, filed out.
- Monk Mink Pink Punk #10 — an informative pamphlet: “Mail Art: Know the Dangers!”
- Collaborative Story — an exquisite corpse project
- Monk Mink Pink Punk #13 — an assembly zine on the theme “Text Play.”
