Pixel Pushers. 1994. This new media art exhibition played a teeny role in the history of digital Art. Opening concurrently in real space and in cyberspace in June 1994, it emerged from my work as art director of Media West magazine in Vancouver. The “real space” exhibition made contributions to an exciting new fine art printmaking medium; the cyberspace gallery was viewed by up to 800 visitors per day; and the CD-ROM+MM catalogue brought the art and music onto personal computer and onto home stereo systems. The exhibition, featuring such luminaries of digital art as Dorothy Krause, Diane Fenster, Helen Golden, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Yuri Dojc, and Kai Krause, toured Canada from Vancouver (Emily Carr Institute), to Calgary (Glenbow Museum), culminating in an integrated performance media presentation at the International Digital Media Awards at Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto. Wired Magazine called it "A site to see!", MuchMusic/MediaTV called it Original and Groundbreaking, the Toronto Star called it "A First". The Calgary Herald called it "Pretty Cheesy" — can't win em all.
