ART IN THE MIND is a publication of conceptual artworks that use letter-sized pages as their medium. a total of 300 copies were published in 1970 and 1971. most of the works were sent to the curator by mail to be included in the publication, which was the exhibition itself. ART IN THE MIND was curated by athena spear (tacha) and published by allen art museum, oberlin college.gap, a project by .-_-. and iz, responds to ART IN THE MIND upon the invitation to participate in ENACT, which is an online exhibition organized as part of cleveland performance art festival 2013. the works junk e-mail on your request (after on kawara, paul kos), delivery failed and evoking the work to an adequate degree perform the gap in our perception of ART IN THE MIND 43 years after its conception, the gap between intellectual property and the commons, and the gaps that occur in describing and imagining the work.

gap is a work of art in the form of a link. it is exhibited within ENACT, the online exhibition for which it was developed, just as http://gap.httpdot.net/ . the audience has to leave the exhibition space to experience it in the directed domain, where the content is autonomously transformable by its authors continuously.
