Sometimes It's a Text and Image World

While some netizens may find repugnant the idea of anything communicated over the web lying archived under glass, Mexican artist Alberto Guedea's curatorial effort, Re:, promises to be an interesting jaunt into cross-platform migration. Guedea has collected specimens of e-mail art from artists all over the world and will show them in the Access Artist Run Center of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, from January 24 to February 14, 2004. While there were no thematic or conceptual parameters placed on the contents of the e-mails, only those who submitted work in the form of text and image (as opposed to Flash or executables) will be represented: the e-mails will be shown offline, as works on paper. --Lewis LaCook
