Send/Receive Satellite Network was a collaborative video programme organised by Liza Bear and Keith Sonneir. It took place in 1977. The project centres on two-way telecommunication and was the first ever interactive satellite transmission organised by artists. Participants included dancers, visual artists, video/filmmakers and musicians, who took part in both verbal interactions and non-verbal performances transmitted via satellite between New York and San Francisco.
Send/Receive exhibits a shallower form of hybridity. The performance takes place in two remote locations. Participation is limited to the participants who are on-site in these two locations.
