The video documents two live telecommunication performances by media artist Tom Klinkowstein: on April 27, 1982, at Cultural Center ‘t Hoogt in Utrecht, Klinkowstein employed slow-scan TV technology to contrast pictures of 1950’s suburban America and present-day Netherlands. On May 13, 1982, Klinkowstein in Rochester, NY, and Ruud van Empel in Rotterdam produced a series of facsimiles simultaneously in both countries using telecopiers and an international telephone connection.
