title: Metaplay
year: 1970

METAPLAY was exhibited in the Memorial Union Gallery of the University of Wisconsin for a month in 1970.

In this work Krueger emphasized the interaction between the participants and the environment. “The computer was used to facilitate a unique real-time relationship between the artist and the participant. An 8’ by 10’ rear-projection video screen dominated the gallery. The live video image of the viewer and a computer graphic image drawn by an artist, who was in another building, were superimposed on this screen. Both the viewer and the artist could respond to the resulting image.”
