Mail art by Joachim Strange to John Held dated 1984 consists of a collage of various media. Dash markings, inscribed in black ink, outline the shape of an envelope on top of typescript repetitive typed words and letters. On the first line of the typed text, the words "seg" and "gas" are underlined with red In the center, "Help me!" is handwritten with the same marker. A clipping of text, in German, is pasted at the bottom center and outlined in black ink to appear as a dialogue bubble. On verso, more typescript text of repetitive letters and made-up words are present.
