Stamps - THIS SERIES IS BASED ON STAMPS MADE FROM DRAWINGS OF MINE (click) Here you see the stamps before they are sent to Italy for an exhibition. It is not sure whether they will arrive or be fished out since these are now official US postal stamps.

I also wanna point out that this art piece is in violation to US laws. I can get into serious legal troubles with this project and do therefore ask anybody to contact me prior to publication. (the postcards don't have any expeditor address to protect myself for this piece - in case you are the receiver of one of these post cards please, do not publish or make public or give my name in case the authorities investigate)

This series of 10 postcard is sent on 11/27/03 for the exhibition: Contested Space, in Florence curated by Marco Scotini.

Should the picutres not arrive because of my fake stamps and the effectivness of the control the curator will just show the printouts of this web site:
