Distance Between Us: Archival Exhibition & Symposium is an exploration into the past, present, and future use of telecommunications technology by artists and artist-run centres. Inspired by early works from Open Spaces 45+ years of program records and archives, this project highlights projects by artists that contribute to the development of media arts and public engagement.

The exhibition will feature archival videos and ephemera from the late 1970s that was generated through the work of Bill Bartlett and Peggy Cady, demonstrating the often curious use of video cameras and slow-scan ROBOT transmitters to share images across the phone-lines. Archival offerings will compliment more recent works by Kerri Flannigan, who has been experimenting with slow-scan video in her collaborative Feeling Measurements media-arts residency at Open Space over the last 6-months. Artist and researcher Patrick Lichty will present some new works building on the history of slow-scan video and the international context that this medium stimulated.

The symposium will investigate the devices and processes that produce slow-scan video as well as critically engage the ideas and theories that motivated its use as an artist medium and as a means of engaging the public in a process of humanizing technology.
