Working with educational specialists from New York University, two environments, designed by Robert Whitman, were set up at the Experiments in Art and Technology loft, 9 East 16th Street and Automation House, 49 East 68th Street. They were linked by 14 dedicated telephone lines and terminal equipment including Xerox and Magnavox facsimile machines, electro-writers, telexes and telephones. From February through May 1971, more than 500 children, ages 6-13, visited the two locations and used the equipment to communicate with each other. [1]
