After emails to e-flux went unanswered and ignored, The Infinity Lab took it upon themselves to create their own major email list to promote their work. e-faux is possibly the largest art-world targeted spamming project of its kind, second only to e-flux, of course, and it will take approximately twelve days to email the entire list we have collected.

The size and importance of our list compares to the 40,000-strong e-flux mailing list and here's how we did it:

Say, you are at the LACMA website, http://LACMA.ORG and you want people at LACMA to see or invite them to your show...

Go to Google and type in     "*@LACMA.ORG"

The "quotation marks" around a phrase will give you answers that include that string of letters only

The * (the star symbol) is the best part of the formula! To Google, the star symbol (*) will act like a variable finder. The results will bring back emails of people in the LACMA organization (ex: JohnDoe@LACMA.ORG)

The LACMA.ORG part can be substituted for any almost website (GETTY.ORG, MOCA.ORG, ... , etc.)

Try it!
