The Exodus Project was a "virtual tele-performance" during Ars Electronica 1995 and brainchild of Michael Bielicky, a Czech-German New Media artist determined to replicate the biblical trail of the prophet Moses. This site is the Net result of Bielicky's creation, a series of virtual images beamed from the Israeli desert using a Global Positioning System and a cellular phone. Bielicky's unusual cartography is accompanied by more conventional maps, and a history of the trail once known to ancient Nabateans as the "spice route." Though the four-day tele-performance is over, the artist's images remain, along with other projects like "The Spiral," a video installation which examines historical communication methods. It's an unusual and provocative use of the Web.
