From an initial image, a chain reaction transformation started, where the paths, contacts and images were memorized under a certain topography.
Each interventor modified the received image and then marked the ramification done on the route over the map and registered the dates of the contact to sent it to two others participants on the net.
The route of the map was built from the bifurcations of the image and its transformations. In other words, each participant received the successive transformation stages that the image had gone through.
The intention was to send this series of transitory stages instead of sending the final product of the transformation work. The main idea was to connect and reconnect these series of stages and transformations with an interactive animation.
This project was developed during the exhibition "Machines à Communiquer" in the "Atelier des Réseaux" at Cité de la Science et de l'Industrie La Villette - Paris from November 1991 until July 1992.
The participants are artists, students and teachers from different universities and schools linked by the telecommunication network: Gilbertto Prado, Marc Colson, Pierre Granoux, Pierre Amatore, Michel Suret-Canale, Claire Jovanovic, Laurent Clavier, Christophe Le François, Liliane Terrier, Marisa Gonzalez, Karen O'Rourke, Martine Jolly, Thierry Dupuy, Marie-Paule Cassagne, Lydie Le Glehuir, Ségolène De La R.
