Out Of Office uses the auto reply feature to showcase art work.
Out Of Office is a “micro curatorial platform” that uses the auto reply feature of email accounts to distribute and view art.
To view an artist’s work, users simply need to send an email to the participating email addresses and they will receive the work via auto-reply.
The platform was created by Matthew Britton who designed it as a more private way to share and view works online. By using the platform, people can enjoy art in the comfort of their own personal space and won’t have to go to the location of an exhibit or display.
The project is currently on exhibit at ArcadeCardiff until the end of the month.
