Email Me: Writings on Contemporary Art and Experimental Literature

Email Me is a printed collection of writing examining email as a material, medium and tool in the visual arts and experimental literature from the late eighties to present day. Composing, sending and receiving become essential components to listserv experimentation, curatorial email projects, spam poetry, collaborative writing or the dreaded break-up email. Email Me shines a light on materiality, interactivity, constraints, moderation, identity and some of the implicit hierarchies that prevail within this medium. 

Writer, Rachel Greene has compared printing images of net art to looking at caged animals in a zoo. Much like net art, many of the email artworks I reference are intended to be experienced in the email browser or online. Once they are displaced from the internet and put into print, they are stripped from their original context. Therefore, readers who wish to interact further with the described work can email the provided email addresses, (which are indicated on the printed publication), and receive additional content, loyal to its true form: the email.
