Is there love in the telematic embrace?

‘In the context of telematic systems and the issue of content and meaning, the parallel shift in art of the status of “observer” to that of “participator” is demonstrated clear- ly if in accounts of the quantum principle we substitute “data” for “quanta”.’ Roy Ascott, in ‘Is There Love in the Telematic Embrace?’ 1991.

This work is a series of physical quanta or voxels: magnetic blocks that the participators can use to create content on a metal screen.
