Artist/filmmaker/performer Miranda July is beginning a new e-mail project — and she could come to your inbox! Not only July, but her friends and accomplices. She’s enlisted as collaborators Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Lena Dunham, Kirsten Dunst, Sheila Heti, Etgar Keret, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, Catherine Opie, Lee Smolin, and Danh Vo.
July will be sending out private e-mails around a theme:
There is something about the mundane-ness that feels very intimate to me. I thought I would do that idea on a grand scale. At first I thought I’d do it with my friends but then I realized no one would care about them as much as I did. So I chose some of my more famous friends, or famous people that weren’t friends. I came up with 10 topics and they had to scavenge through their inboxes for an email that fit each topic.
To sign up for the e-mails, go here. The first theme is money.
