The Distribution Religion – Dan Sandin and Phil Morton (1971 – 1973)

Distribution Religion

The Distribution Religion – Dan Sandin and Phil Morton (1971 – 1973)

Phil Morton asked Dan Sandin if he could build the first copy of Sandin’s original Sandin Image Processor. Sandin and Morton then began to work together to create the schematic plans for the Sandin Image Processor, a document they called the Distribution Religion. Through The Distribution Religion, Sandin open sourced his Sandin Image Processor, giving the plans away for only the cost of making Xerox copies and mailing them while incorporating any additions or modifications made by those who built their own Sandin Image Processor into any further releases of the Distribution Religion.

In 2005 Chicago-based criticalartware group (of which i am a founding member and core.developer) released an archive of the Distribution Religion, converting the documents to digital formats and distributing them freely online as shared cultural resources in order to encourage and activate the present and futures of these Media Art Hystories. – jonCates
