[AUTORESPONSE] was a project initiated by Bot.Watch which utilized the "out of office" message bot as a platform for exhibiting art. To participate, viewers sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and in turn received an automated-reply message containing artwork. The three artists featured in the project's April and May 2016 editions were curated by WCUSPR. They were:
Norbert Delman was born 1989 in Warsaw, where he currently lives and works.

Izabela Chamczyk was born in 1980 and graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, Poland. Working in many media, she constantly redefines their boundaries; emotions are an essential element of her idea of art. Her Twelve-month War, realized in 2013, explored issues connected with the place of the artist in the art market and in the circles of cultural institutions. Chamczyk was twice awarded scholarships from the Minister of Culture and National Heritage, and has had her work included at venues such as SCC Gallery in Isfahan, Iran; Entropia Gallery in Wrocław, Poland; GSW in Opole; BWA Zielona Góra; Centre for Contemporary Art in Toruń; and ERARTA in Saint Petersburg. Her works are in many private and public collections in Poland and abroad.
