Trans VSI Connection NSCAD-NETCO Sept 15 - Oct 5, 1969

N.E. Thing Co., Ralph Pomeroy


Artists' book documenting early attempts to bridge technology [telegrams, telex, telecopier], distance [Vancouver to Nova Scotia] and time [the four hour time zone change between the two cities]. Also, something of an early do-it-yourself attempt with N.E. Thing sending instructions for artworks and students at NSCAD attempting to execute and respond with results. A woeful "look at how cool technology is" attempt. Project also involved David Askevold, Mary Lou Bowstead, Richards Jarden, Jo Knapp, Sue Krassman, and others.
