Eric Andersen

An artist included in Between Sound and Vision exhibited at Gallery 400, Eric Andersen (born 1940) is one of the pioneers of InterMedia and a founding member of FLUXUS. For the past four decades Andersen has developed open works that include audience participation and communication not conditioned by traditional media or accepted technology. In 1996, during Copenhagen, The Cultural City of Europe, he became the artistic director of the largest InterMedia event ever presented. The event lasted three days and included helicopters, parachuters, live sheep, mountainclimbers, and five hundred singers walking on the sea.
