Date: Wed, 2 Feb 1994 17:21:57 -0800 (PST) From: john hansen <> I am interested in participating in this outstanding project. My background consists of twenty-five years experience as graphic designer, designing national publications, packaging and corporate identity for leading international businesses; producing multi-media audio-visual presentations for educational, political and marketing applications; digital artist, oil painter and computer-graphics instructor. I am the principal of GraphicTraphic, digital graphic design, and on the faculty of The Art Institute of Seattle, both in Seattle, Washington USA. If appropriate, my contribution would reflect a current project: abstract digital art. I look forward also to participating in other types of exchange (i.e. email, irc, ftp connections, etc.). Thanks to all who are making possible this great exchange of culture. John Hansen
Date: Wed, 9 Feb 1994 22:58:29 -0800 (PST) From: john hansen Subject: HANDSHAKE To: Barbara: Thanks for answering all my questions. I will be sending three jpeg's, abstract artworks. I'm experiencing (much to my disgust) trouble with my Unix server in sending and receiving binary files, just as of tonight ):| I'm assuming that the trouble wil be fixed soon, and that you and participants there will be able to see these. The art is produced on a Macintosh Quadra 660AV, using ColorIt! with Kai's Power Tools and processed for cross-platform viewing with Graphics Converter, Apple File Exchange and Access PC.

I am a design consultant (digital visual communications, corporate identity, packaging, publ;ications), fine artist (oil paintings, digital art, sculpture), and educator (computer graphic design). Thank you again for this opportunity to participate. I look forward to the upcoming exchanges. Yours truly: John Hansen
