    Telematic and Telepresence Installations

Abstract:


    My work with telecommunications started in 1985, when I creat­ed a virtual gallery that could be accessed via the videotext sys­tem. Since 1989, I have been working with Ed Bennett on the Ornitorrinco project of telepresence installations. The basic struc­ture of these installations is comprised of a wireless telerobot, reg­ular phone lines (both for vision and remote control), and remote spaces. Viewers become participants as they transport themselves to the remote body and navigate the remote space freely by press­ing the keys on a familiar telephone.
