Want to Wallow in Somebody’s Else’s Rejection Letters Read (As They Were Written) by Robots?

posted by on October 17 at 11:00 AM


Well then, sound artist Dan Senn has you covered.

His installation Fanning Rejection is built around decades of his own rejection letters. Check it out if you’re in Portland at the Portland Building through October 31.

Or you can experience it, in part—the robotic, repeatedly being rejected partright here.

No, no I don't. Not at all.

Attention Artists: The magnitude of your failure is of interest to no one but you.

Written by robots? If by that you mean nobody sat down and penned you a thoughtful, heartfelt note on scented stationery, then yeah, robots.

Otherwise you were sent a form letter. Who cares? Get over it.

I chanced upon this visit in Portland a few days ago and not only is it kinetically beautiful (these fax papers lightly flit about... you have to chase them down a bit for a read), but the piece is really very witty. Not often have a seen contemporary art that so seamlessly combines technology, humor, sculpture and sound. It's worth a visit to Portland.
