e-postcards - Barcelona4

In 2006, Philip Mantione and I gave up our home and lived in different countries for short periods of time. Our post office BOX 1035, also our collaborative name, became a symbol of non-permanence and nomadic existence that was motivated by our interest in experience and movement. Throughout our travels I created e-postcards, a detailed online photo journal, updated on a daily basis. In a way, e-postcards became a surrogate home for us.

On the project site interface, the artist residency “projects” correspond to the dates and locations directly across on the left column (click on the image below to enlarge).

Barcelona 6

Having given up their permanent address, the artists now describe themselves as nomads. They travel the globe, yet maintain permanent residence on their web-site. Through e-correspondence, they created an installation in the Carriage House that comments on pollution, global relations and the simple act of keeping in touch with friends and family.
(by Karen Shaw, Senior Curator, Islip Art Museum, New York – see “… until you slip” project above)
