Each telefax communication takes between three and six minutes, depending on
data-transfer speed. The telefax message consists of three or four A4 pages
bearing a typographic image which reads choosen internet server's HTML error
report. The received computer graphics are free of charge and copyleft [i.e.
no copyright], and can be reproduced in any analogue or digital form. Fax
recepients can sent their feedback [fax or e-mail], which is archived at the
web. There is open possibility to fax | print | copy | paste the graphics
from web site as well.

Each database was made with use of several sources. Despite the excellent
access to information about the institutions in the Netherlands, a lot of
fax numbers were not listed. Addresses and telephone numbers are common
contacts, and occasionally e-mail addresses appear, but fax numbers were the
rarest data.

Keywords: fine arts network from the Netherlands; fax art, database art,
spam art, mail art, communication art, computer graphic, typographic image

Low-tech: action is automated, performed by computer Apple Macintosh LC
[model from 1990] and Global Village fax-modem. The starting time of the
communication is pre-programmed, and the fax software dials all fax numbers
automatically [if communication fails, the number is repeated another nine
times at 45-minute intervals]
