This is a brilliant video and I cannot stop watching the delicate dance of the papers and evolving images appearing right before my eyes. Bravo! Question...Did you ever receive my Mail Art? I never heard one way or another and somehow thought something must has happened. I will send you another bit and piece of me here in Newark, OH.
