Day de Dada Mandala Mail Art Table

The word Mandala means “circle”. A Mandala represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relation to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds.

The mandala appears to us in all aspects of life, the Earth, the Sun, the Moon and more obviously the circles of life encompassing friends, family and communities.

Day de Dada Ground Mandala (by Margaret Chase)

People decorate the Mandala with found objects – keeping the pattern balanced.

Db Lampman showed her film “Home” which is an experimental video inspired by the experience of pregnancy
and is an exploration into the idea of the womb as a place of origin.
The audio track is composed of recorded actual womb sounds that have been mixed
so that they are sometimes comforting, sometimes menacing, sometimes hypnotic.

March 18, 2015

st george day

Day de Dada at St George Day, Saturday, April 25, 2015.  Join Day de Dada for a mail art workshop.  The theme is ‘wishes’ and we will have all the materials ready for you to create mail art to send out or to be displayed at “What Do You Wish?” at the Staten Island Ferry Culture Lounge this summer July through September.

Mail art (also known as Postal art and Correspondence art) is a populist artistic movement centered on sending small scale works through the postal service. It initially developed out of the Fluxus movement in the 1950s and 60s, though it has since developed into a global movement that continues to the present.” from Wikipedia

“The biography of an artist is frequently written after his death, imperfectly and incompletely. Since I don’t want any such biography to be written about me, I’ve decided to write my own.” —G.A. Cavellini.Cavellini_42014-11-15 19.47.57
