Dear Silvia... July 2009

Silvia Kolbowski
Acetate Disc
32 × 32 cm

This limited edition multiple by Silvia Kolbowski was commissioned by Fillip in collaboration with a talk organized by Maria Fusco at Whitechapel Gallery, London titled Living Clay: Art Writing Readings.

The recording consists of all e-mail messages received by Kolbowski during July 2009 from many non-profit political organizations, exhorting her to attend to a wide variety of urgent issues. These missives, edited down from 16,000 words to 3,000 words, and all opening with the (algorithimically aided) personal address “Dear Silvia,” are read for this record by a 12 year old girl. The work questions the symptoms of US democracy that these exhortations represent.

Signed and Numbered Edition of 25
