last night Printed Matter "the world's greatest source for artists' publications" threw open the doors to their storage space. my colleague, dan visel, and i couldn't resist the opportunity to rummage through the bins for hidden treasures dating from the late 70s. 2 thoughts: we're still a long way from the time when browsing an electronic archive will be anywhere near as pleasing, at least on the sensual plane; paper art may have hit it's height in that moment with the arrival of desktop publishing and cheap xeroxing; now a lot of the energy that people were putting into the creation of paper art is likely going into e-artifacts and e-zines.

Hi Bob - I've been trying to send you an email but your adress seems to bounce - can you send me an email or add me to your safe list? I'd love to chat via email about the institute
