Participation with  Fax Virus - 1992  and  F For Facsimile - 2009


Fax Virus - 1992

In 1992 I created a work, Fax Virus, based on the moebius strip,
meant to be inserted in a twisted closed loop into a fax machine.
It was then sent as a fax of unlimited length that would exhaust
the paper roll of the receiving fax machine.
It had a visual suggestion of how the virus could be further
transmitted – xeroxed images of smaller paper moebius strips,
which disassemble and reassemble themselves.


Fax Virus - 1992
One loop : 95 inches x 8 inches (240 cm x 20 cm)
Transmission length variable

F For Facsimile - 2009
