I documented this telecommunication event between artist groups in Cambridge and Paris on February 1, 1981. Both groups transmitted a series of fragmented images depicting both countries’ presidents by means of slow-scan television. These images were then photographically enlarged and assembled to form 6’ x 8’ murals of Ronald Reagan and Giscard D’Estaing in a presidential exchange. Artists Aldo Tambellini and Roland Baladi crossed the Atlantic to supervise activities at the American Center in Paris and the Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS) in Cambridge.
