  • Fred Truck, USA, has been working in electronic media since 1980. In 1984, he published an innovative text that could only have been done electronically – George Maciunas, Fluxus and the Face of Time. This work is in the library of the Modern Art, and many other museums here and abroad. In 1986, he cofounded the Art Com Electronic Network with Carl Loeffler; it has been on-line continuously since then. His most recent work is The Labyrinth, a virtual reality art work which featured Leonardo da Vinci’s Flying Machine. The Labyrinth was shown in the Machine Culture art show at SIGGRAPH ’93.
