Ray Johnson / Ant Farm Mail Art

A double-sided sheet with a Ray Johnson work on one side, and an Ant Farm work on the other. The side by Ant Farm has what appears to be a blue-colored rubber stamp on it (but it is printed/mechanically reproduced) that includes the phrase "Ice 9". Ice-9 was an inflatable structure Ant Farm brought on tour for events and happenings. The Ice-9 reference comes from Kurt Vonnegut's book Cat's Cradle, in which Ice-9 is a type of ice that freezes at 45 degrees and spreads throughout the world, freezing everything but the ants.

Likely a sheet of mail art that was included along with others in a group mailing, or possibly issued in conjunction with an event or exhibit. Item #910.

Condition: Near Fine, tiny bumps to top corners.
