Felix Sattler, are joining the already dynamic team of Michael Arnold Mages,

collective facilitatory wisdom :).  Regular -empyre- readers will already

--> Jim Andrews introduces himself:
I am a web.artist, visual poet, programmer, audio guy, and critic. I've
published my work on http://vispo.com since 1995. My site is my 'book'.

organized and hosted a live readings series called Mocambopo in my home town

--> Felix Sattler (*29/09/1979) says about himself:
"i started out in media theory and cultural studies which still seems to
have some heavy formal influence on my current work. i am presently doing a
media arts degree both at the  bauhaus-university weimar, germany and at the
college of fine arts  sydney. most of my works have been sound and video
installations employing a  sense of transition between physical and
ephemeral spaces. ie, my recent larger-scale project, »syn-F0« (clouds)
dealt with the  shaping of sound as a sculptural practice. besides my own
artistic practice i have been involved in the  organisation of
the »backup_festival. new media in film» as the  coordinator of the addtl.
program and as part of the curator's team of  the ».lounge|lab open source
<> open art« collaborative workspace & exhibition in 2002."
