Elastic Fax I

Elastic Fax I, created by Eduardo Kac, was realized at the Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1991. Artists worldwide were invited to transmit sequences of images to form a self-editing faxfilm. Sequences were added automatically in the order received. The entire 30-meter (99 feet) roll of thermal fax paper was used uncut and displayed in one piece on a wall at the Museum. As the viewer walked by this telematic scroll, he became a moving projector, thus animating the faxfim strip.
