The zine and mail art universe brings a lot of interesting stuff to our mailbox on a weekly basis, and never ceases to amaze what people will come up with. For example, Discard is a really awesome art exchange project that involves a series of take-one-leave-one library pockets that have been nonchalantly placed at various places around the world. The rules are simple:
1) if you find one, keep the art that's in it.
2) refill the pocket with some arty artifact of your own.
3) email a picture of what you find to discarder.blogpot.com
We threw one up on a student posting board on a recent tour of Media Arts school in downtown Minneapolis.
