This Day in History

On June 17, 1997, both Cynthia Kitchen (one of the lead avatars in GRAMMATRON) and myself were featured in the Workspace site at the Tenth Documenta (dX) in Kassel, Germany.

It was the Day of the Manifestoes.

Do these virtual appearances mean we were IN Documenta?

Unfortunately, the Workspace site and all of the "dX" website were taken off the web at the end of the event - strange, huh? But that's how they thought back in those days.

Fortunately, the net dot artist Vukie Coshic downloaded the whole site before the "dX" organizers knew it, and virtually republished it here (a readymade net dot art work of sorts).

Nine years later we have to ask: where have all the net dot artists gone?
