"In 2013 artist Rob Myers and I developed an “#arthistory” hashtag 
artwork. The artwork itself comprises both the ability to render this 
piece of digital text in 3D form and its ownership/use by anyone. There 
is a dedicated website that explains the project and points to how the 
tags themselves can be obtained. It also features links to places where 
you can see the hashtag in use and join in (i.e. tagging real world 
items as “art history”), these include a Flickr group, a Tumblr blog and 
of course the #arthistory Twitter stream. The project is actually a

journal article I wrote called ‘Is Art History Too Bookish?’. And in 
this capacity, Myers’ and my physical hashtags are created as a way of 
pondering the physical nature of art history..."
