How to Do Things with Email: My Holy Nacho

Texts — 2015

The core of My Holy Nacho, an artistic project by Jamie Allen and Bernhard Garnicnig, is “immaterial” work: remote, delocalized, triggered only by instructions sent by digital means. Over more than a year, these two artists commissioned various services from successive industrial suppliers throughout the world, limiting their communication to mere emails. This publication comprises a selection of the digital documents that constitute the (immaterial) archive generated by this work process, as well as twe essays by Robert Jackson and me.

By virtue of its format, however, this is not just a publication, but suitable also a device suitable to be displayed in three-dimensional space, as if it were an object.
