Real Snail Mail: Installation
Vicky Isley & Paul Smith (aka boredomresearch) in 2009 developed an installation version of their project Real Snail Mail (www.realsnailmail.net). The world's first webmail service to use live snails to deliver messages. The Real Snail Mail installation enables an audience to view the webmail service live and the RFID tagged snails housed within an exhibition open top table enclosure, with multiple RFID readers, substrate and planting.
boredomresearch first exhibited the Real Snail Mail installation in their solo exhibition 'Chasing Stillness' at [DAM]Berlin (Aug-Sept 2009).
