    Dear Dan Zen,

    I am contacting you, in order to ask you to contribute to our online-journal My name is Yuna Rault-D’Inca and I am co-editing our art and culture section. We will shortly publish a 360° article on INTERACTIVE ART (which means a general insight article). We used one of your pictures found in creative commons to illustrate it.

    We would therefore be pleased if you could participate by conducting an interview with me (via skype preferably), by writing a focus article describing your work or your vision on interactivity in the arts or by letting us use parts of your blog to illustrate the topic.

    I would be pleased to hear from you soon

    Sincerely, yours
