Sun Dog, Rockne Krebs, 1976. U.S. Bicentennial Expo Science and Technology, Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, FL.
Science Friday, NPR, August 2015. Museum Plays Art and Technology Matchmaker and the legacy of LACMA’s first Art and Technology program
"When the Los Angeles County Museum of Art launched its first Art & Technology program back in 1967, the idea of artists and technologists collaborating was radical—and the art world wasn’t quite ready."
“I Had a Friend in High School”
“My serve is so good,
“I am in your debt, and all I did was stand briefly in front of your camera. Sincerely, Rockne Krebs, Sept. 2008 P.S. And beat you in ping pong. Ho, Ho, Ho! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Thank you!”
Rockne saved me by agreeing to do a commercial job
(I believe his only one)
for a GE marketing campaign with me.
