“Last year, 185 people from 34 countries responded to an invitation to submit art and poetry on Frankenstein. These WWW pages showcase some of these submissions. I started the exhibition because, reading the novel after many years, I realised that almost all our images of Mary Shelley’s creature come from the 1931 film … the familiar great green stupid monster. He’s not at all like that and I selected and distributed the passages from the novel which explain why. I’m also very concerned about how people, past a certain age, cease to think of themselves as being creative; Mail art gives everyone a chance to reflect and express themselves in various ways.”
