About the Electronic Cafe International: Sherrie Rabinowitz and Kit Galloway pioneered the Electronic Cafe(tm) and telecommunicative arts in 1977 with the “Satellite Arts Project,” a collaboration with NASA, which has a mixed media, multi-screen, multi-location event exploring virtual space. In 1980 they produced the “Hole In Space” installation, which put Lincoln Center on the West Side of Los Angeles. Over a period of three days, people in Los Angeles encountered people in New York on a life-sized, giant screen and vice versa (a virtual street corner). In 1984, Rabinowitz and Galloway first introduced the Electronic Cafe(tm) as part of the Los Angeles Olympic Arts Festival, connecting five culturally diverse communities and the Museum of Contemporary Art in a multi-media and computer network. They have facilitated an ever-increasing global network of Cafes, and regularly host an eclectic range of telecommunicative events, including music events and interactive dance, Telepoetics, Virtual Reality study groups, and their annual Global New Year’s Even Telebration. The Kitchen joined this international networkd in 1994.
