Fax art

Fax art is art specifically designed to be sent or transmitted by a facsimile machine, where the "fax art" is the received "fax". It is also called telecommunications art or telematic art.[1] "Fax art was another means of mediating distances," according to art historians Annmarie Chandler and Norie Neumark.[2] Fax art was first faxed in 1980, but that was not documented until 1985.[2] The earliest scholarly note of fax art in art history was in 1990 by Karen O'Rourke.[3]
