Gomez-Perales, Siggraph '92
Artist: Juan L. Gomez-Perales
Title: The Electronic Mural
Date: 1992
Media: digital collaborative drawing
Dimensions: 4 days long
The Electronic Mural project was organized as a part of SIGGRAPH '92. Invited artists in Chicago, New York, Tokyo, San Francisco and Toronto participated in four days of collaborative digital drawing. The constantly evolving drawing - a realtime improvised performance piece - was seen live on a large video wall at SIGGRAPH in Chicago. The drawings were produced on computers networked over ISDN lines (which were experimental at the time). My involvement was in Toronto in a computer lab located in the Bell Canada Building, along with Artur Matuck, Rick Simon and Dada Axis.
