Miranda July and the National Security Agency

Agents of the Poorly Kept Secret Society received their first missive today from Miranda July.  Her new project, We Think Alone, is an art project delivered directly to email accounts.  July is curating emails from the inboxes of her friends from around the world, and sending you a new collection each week.  The individuals who volunteered for this invasion of privacy are:

  • Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
  • Lena Dunham
  • Kirsten Dunst
  • Sheila Heti
  • Etgar Keret
  • Kate and Laura Mulleavy
  • Catherine Opie
  • Lee Smolin
  • Danh Vo

The theme of the first message was “money”.

Our organization is still unsure if this project is: a) gooey-eyed celebrity worship mixed with voyeurism, or b) a tantalizing foray by an extraordinary artist into the banality of our modern communications.  Or, as some of our Agents hope, just a bit of fun at our expense.
