An odd art project — imagined conversations between famous people in the early days of ARPANET, the network that eventually evolved into the Internet:
Who is your favourite puppet from the line of characters you have created Jim.
Thank you. John loves your programmes too.
Each character is special for me they represent different aspects of myself. Kermit the frog is perhaps closest to me. An altar ego of sorts.
What does that say about you.
Big laughs. He is exceptional.
I dont know. I don’t think too much about it.
My favourite is Big Bird. He is so tall and gentle.
To be honest I find it to be senseless entertainment. I prefer the celebration of men and what they can achieve.
Do you have children Ms Rand.
What do children have to do with what I prefer.
