Bard student Vanessa Haroutunian stumbled across Joanie 4 Jackie when it was in a period of repose – a pile of forgotten boxes in a room. Just a few years before Bard students had actively been making Chainletter compilations…but those students had all since graduated. Vanessa’s excavation of Joanie 4 Jackie became her senior thesis, this video. And she helped reestablish the J4J Tutorial at Bard, a credited class whose students digitized most of the material that is the basis for this website.
