BBC -- Tim Kirby spotted how it's possible to send art by e-mail to a gallery. It's something that we demonstrated to second level students in Kilkenny (at right), although in a very low-brow way.
From the Beeb via Tim:
Artists from around the world are being encouraged to e-mail their masterpieces to be displayed in an East London art gallery. Graphic artists, designers and film-makers are all being asked to contribute to the Hype Gallery, in London's East End, with their digital pictures or short films.
The idea was developed with Hewlett Packard, which has installed a range of equipment, from huge laser printers to projectors, in the gallery. When a piece of art is received, via e-mail or on a CD, it is printed out on huge machines, mounted, then hung on the wall for all to enjoy.
BBC -- "Email to art gallery in an instant"
Tim Kirby knows how to do this with no operator's manual.
