This spectacular satellite link-up, coordinated by Paik, connected the United States, Brazil, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Japan and numerous other countries. David Bowie performs with La, La, La, Human Steps, and carries out a conversation via satellite with Japanese musician Ryuichi Sakamoto, who also performs. There are also appearances by Merce Cunningham, the Viennese Art Orchestra, a game of elephant soccer in Thailand and a car race in Ireland. The whole event is held together by Paik's video graphics, which includes one of his stacked television sculptures.
