This exhibition catalog features work of a multigenerational group of artists, architects, designers, scientists, and filmmakers who were invited to conceive of the fax machine as a tool for thinking and drawing. The book contains as essay by exhibition curator Joao Ribas and over 200 faxed pages all transmitted via The Drawing Center’s working fax line, including drawings, texts, and some seminal examples of early telecommunications art, as well as the inevitable errors of transmission, junk, and “fax lore”. The works formed the core of the traveling exhibition circulated by iCI.
