One Way Karma (detail: fax transmission report)

Invited artists are asked to submit a message for a recipient of their choosing. These would be sent - using a fax machine that kept the sender's number private - over a twelve-hour period on a Sunday. On arrival at work the next morning, the recipient's peripheral staff would be faced with deciding for whom the message is intended.
