Using her private E-mail account the artist is sending 700 megabytes in various sets of data over the air and is thereby leaving her fingerprints on the web.
But what exactly does it mean to send something OUT THERE? Where is this? Everywhere? Nowhere? Where will it pass and where will it stop? Where will it leave its traces? What is left of it after some milliseconds, some years, some ages ... ?
Everybody welcome to get a first impression of the one-on-one performances through the few representative e-mails on the right.
What is our relationship to space and how has it changed in the age of the internet? We now longer need to store information in a "physical" form: i.e. printed, on a dvd or cd, or hard drive. While we still resort to these methods, more and more of the information we work with is being stored on the internet. The idea of an information cloud has become a part of our collective consciousness and we are now willing to use this realm for storage, both of our work and our memories. No longer do we need to remember all those pesky facts and figures, the internet houses them for us. In this piece, 700mb of information was transmitted, in the form of emails, into this space, with the question of where this information is going and the relationship between the physical and the non-physical constantly in mind. The email addresses were randomly chosen using words relating to cyberculture. Some emails were immediately kicked back to me. Some I received responses from. The others I am still patiently waiting in hopes that my message was received. The physical cd acts merely as an extraneous documentation of this performance, and does not contain 700mb of information.
