Received mailart, whether sent to me by the originator or passed on to me as unwanted mailart, is all treated the same way. Each 'package' is inspected and then divided into the following categories:
GENERAL (includes artistamps, artistsbooks, mailart zines, audio tapes, CD-ROMs, computer disks)
MAIIARTISTS' PROJECTS (inculdes Robin Crozier's Memos, Ryosuke Cohen's Brain Cell, Chain letters)
MAIIART WRITINGS (includes books, writings on Ray Johnson)
OTHER WORK (all other received work, including envelopes etc. sorted into alphabetical order and stored in filing cabinets. There is always a residue of work waiting to be allocated a place in a filing cabinet, this is kept in cardboard boxes.)
MY RETURNED PROJECTS (includes stampsheets, Enegry Journals)
DOCUMENTATION (includes notebooks, record cards, and computer databases)
