Fax art is art specifically designed to be sent or transmitted by a facsimile machine, where the "fax art" is the received "fax". It is also called telecommunications art or telematic art. "Fax art was another means of mediating distances," according to art historians Annmarie Chandler and Norie Neumark. Fax art was first faxed in 1980, but that was not documented until 1985. The earliest scholarly note of fax art in art history was in 1990 by Karen O'Rourke.
