Against and Among Institutions: Mail Art as a Subversive Medium by John Held, Jr. from "Going Postal!" #1

"Against and Among Institutions: Mail Art as a Subversive Medium" by John Held, Jr.

I know that things like this don’t happen without effort on one’s own part, but it’s long overdue…and I keep waiting. For how much longer, I don’t know.



Some would argue that an exhibition on Mail Art,… Continue

Musea E-mail club #479 : Why We Sleep - a hypothesis

Readers,

This week is something different. I usually talk about some aspect of the arts and media, but this time my subject is science - specifically sleep, and a possible reason why we sleep. My ideas on sleep are certainly novel ideas. But you will also find a lot of casual evidence to support them in studies posted on the internet. I have put his essay on a science newsgroup, and I'm reposting it here. If these ideas are true, they may point the way to some important discoveries… Continue
