USCO was a media art collective in the 60s and 70s, founded by Michael Callahan and Gerd Stern, who also founded Intermedia Systems Corporation which produced multimedia art internationally. Influenced by media theorist Marshall McLuhan, they were using stroboscopes, projectors and audiotapes in their performances. Eventually they moved into an old church in Garnerville, Rockland County, NY. To underline the community character of the project, USCO used the phrase "We are all one". The abbreviation USCO stands for “The Company of Us". Among its members were the painter Stephen Durkee and the video artist Jud Yalkut. Stewart Brand, although not a formal member of the group, held close relations to USCO.
