In One Year and Out the Other
On New Year’s Eve, make a telephone call from one time zone to another so that you are conducting a conversation between people located in two years.
First performed on New Year’s Eve 1975-1976, calling from Springfield, Ohio forward to Nam June Paik, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Dick Higgins, and George Maciunas in New York, then back to Tom Garver and Natasha Nicholson in California. Celebrated annually since then by telephone, telefax, and email. With Melbourne, Australia going into the New Year before most of the world, messages have gone back to the old year since 2008.
