Re: <nettime> Robert Adrian, 1935 - 2015

   Dear Netters,

   I first met Bob in San Francisco in 1978 during a radio art
   performance.  We saw each other again in Vancouver and soon after in
   Vienna. He and I collaborated for many years on a project called
   Wiencouver. I always looked forward to our telematic encounters. He
   played an important role in the network. Bob won the inaugural Nam Jun
   Paik prize in 2010, richly deserved for his unique contribution. We
   were lucky enough to visit each other from time to time and worked on
   other projects together. Always feisty and ready for a good debate, Bob
   was still that way when I last saw him in 2013. I agree with Armin
   about the visual arts bent, which I share. We were friends for many
   years. Matt and Sandra, his son and daughter in law, actually moved to
   Vancouver. Bob was a significant part of my life. Beautiful guy.

   Keep it going Nettime,

   Hank Bull

     Dear Nettimers,
     here is an interview I did in 1997 with Robert Adrian, that might help
     to understand his position and oeuvre better:
