Digital technology is what enables the Publication Studio network, which extends across the United States, Canada, and Europe, to function. It is also what makes Some Woolly Buzz possible. Contributing artists sent PDFs to Higgins and Slade, who printed them and mounted them, unframed, on the walls. Slade points out that this inaugural exhibition harks back to the mail-art networks of the 1960s and ’70s. In the case of Some Woolly Buzz, the postal system has been replaced by electronic mail as a way of exchanging images and ideas outside the institutional and commercial confines of the art world.
