Fred Camper in his review of the "Electronic Immersions" show (October 10) shows that he is both a jealous and frustrated human being. Jealous because the electronic art world has passed him by and frustrated because he does not have the ability to understand it. His comments about Dan Sandin, Joan Truckenbrod, Joe Reitzer, etc, were totally out of touch with reality. His overpretentious, narrow-minded, snobby attitude belongs in the 19th century. Electronic artists by nature don't play by the same rules as traditional artists. It's a wide-open and exciting field. The old ways don't apply. Traditional art criticism does not apply. Mr. Camper should crawl back into his cave and stick to his role as president of the Flat Earth Society.
