This "piece" is two computers emailing each other, and no amount of waxing philosophic makes it anything more than that. Just the fact that something this uninspiring makes it into media art gallery's represents everything that is wrong with media art curation. It focuses on some inane aspect of ubiquitous technology in an effort to make it seem novel, but its not. It's email.

When are we going to expect some level of craft and ingenuity from media art and not settle for half a concept with a computer strapped to it? Are we really that hard up for good media art that we are willing to navel gaze at a single recursive loop?
