I receive from Rachel Defay-Liautard news about her installation @ The Bury Museum (“The installation was commissioned by the Museum, as an accompaniment to Random Archive exhibition, an installation of the Text Art Archive, running since May 20th until August 12th”). For me it is really of great interest, so I thought to make the newsletter available here (images included): https://slowforward.files.wordpress.com/2017/08/maintenant-synapse_-newsletter-aug-17.pdf
