Open Space introduced the Telecom History Project, OUTERSPACE, seen on the Open Space website ( Open Space has been an innovator in contemporary art since 1972. Under the Directorship of Bill Bartlett from 1974–1978, Open Space experimented with Slow-Scan video and other pioneering New Media Ventures. This historical period is a very important one, not only for Open Space while it entered the International Art Scene, but also for the development of new media in general with regards to creativity and education. This research project was supported by The British Columbia Museums Association through a Digital Collections grant.

Mapping the Transition from Page to Screen

Date: Monday, October 27, 2003

Artist: Sue Thomas

Artist's Talk: Monday, October 27, at 8 p.m.

Mapping the Transition from Page to Screen was a one-year research project (2002–3) funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Board. It explored the common key moments of change for a writer moving to writing online and identified key skills which must be acquired for this transition to occur.

This talk outlined key issues that arose during the research period and proposed further areas for investigation. The project also produced a short online guide to the differences between print and new media literature and a practical online toolkit of support materials for writers new to the medium.
