Dear George W. Hart,

I checked out your website and it’s pretty cool. You have a lot of neat stuff on there. I wish my office looked like yours, but unfortunately I’m not creatively inclined.

So I thought I’d send you a letter and you could do something cool to it and send it back (or send me one you’ve written on your own). I thought maybe you could cut a piece of paper into a mobile or fold it in on itself in some way that defies physics like you did to that bagel!

Please sign the completed work so I can prove to people that I have an authentic George W. Hart hanging in my cubical!

Sometimes I have a fear that if the subject of one of these letters actually figured out what was up I’d be considered an asshole, then I remember I don’t care what other people think, and the only person that’s figured it out before replying (that I know of) offered to be my lawyer, so I think this is an unreasonable fear. All the same, I like to imagine that if George W. Hart would have goggled my name before replying I would have actually gotten my letter sent back as a mobile.

For fuck’s sake this man turns bagels into mobius strips!

Anyway, check out his site, his art, and send him lots of mail!
