Back around 2005 (or ‘04, I can’t really remember), we did an event as part of LVHRD series that we called “FXHRD” where we released a “secret” number to our audience and then asked people to fax in anything that they wanted to, creating a piece of unique art. We then created a gallery for a night and showed all of the images that came in at the “opening”. There were lots of great portraits and other interesting well thought out designs. I remember Jennifer Daniels had a great one.
Like many of the things we did, it was a analog reaction to the digital world we saw growing around us. In the lifecycle of ideas, it took a while for this one to come back around, but there it is. Lots of the Barbarians are LVHRD alums and I like where they took this one.
Fax Blog is the best. It uploads whatever gets faxed to its “secret number.”

Print isn’t dead (yet). Just the overhead is.
