satellite views and microscopic images of digital circuits
Method
Slow Scan Television
Method
In 1989, Eduardo Kac transmitted from Chicago his artwork Spacescapes via slow-scan television simultaneously to Pittsburgh (to the DAX Group) and to Boston (to a group led by Dana Moser). The transmission took place in the context of the Three-City Link event. In Spacescapes, 1989, an alternating sequence of satellite views and microscopic images of digital circuits fused into one another at the receiver's end, forming an electronic palimpsest in which large and small merge.
