Mail Art by Riitta Ikonen

Check out this seriously awesome mail art sent over the last several years by Finnish artist Riitta Ikonen to Margaret Huber, an art professor at the University of Brighton.  Fishing line and hooks, metal pipes, pieces of bark…not only are these enjoyable as pieces of art; it’s fun to think of the dedicated postal workers who got them where they were going!

The copper pipe with the address etched on it seems particularly difficult to decipher! And check out this hair mail:
