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