Dinner, Talk and Performance
Talk with Heidi Grundmann, short performance by Ian Birse and Laura
Friday June 3, starting at 6 pm (free admission)

Heidi Grundmann visited the Western Front in April 2005 with the aim
of creating an on line (web) archive about the long and continuing
Wiencouver project a series of Telematic exchanges that have taken place
between the Western Front and Vienna since 1979. Wiencouver has
used the telephone, video phone, fax machines, Slow Scan Television,
computer timesharing networks, Internet streaming and radio to connect
at distant points in a variety of projects. As one of the first on-going
projects of it's kind, the history of Wiencouver provides an interesting
background and context for future Telematic works. The Wiencouver on-line
documentation will be launched and presented at the talk.

Dinner starts around 6:30 pm
Heidi Grundmann Talk at 8 pm
Ian Birse and Laura Kavanaugh Performance at 9:30 pm
