Screensavers Contemporary Digital Art Gallery: Desktop Collection

Dear Mél Hogan,

My name is Sakrowski [curatingyoutube.net], I’ve been invited to compile the next exhibition for the Screen Saver Gallery project – contemporary digital art gallery in screensavers run by Czech artists Barbora Trnková & Tomáš Javůrek (http://screensaver.metazoa.org/about/).

Therefore I would like to ask your permission to use your collection ( https://melhogan.com/website/show-me-your-desktop/ ) of desktop pictures for the exhibition in the Screen Saver Gallery.

My curatorial intention is to show at the screensaver exhibition different desktop collections (SHOW ME YOUR DESKTOP / COLLECTION) – they shall be presented in chronological order and will be provided with metadata (e.g. collection time, author/curator, url etc.). In addition, there will be open possibility for everyone to contribute their desktop and add it to the screensaver show, to explicitly illustrate this fascinating intimate sort of digital image culture…

With kind regards
Sakrowski
