[-empyre-] Introducing Tim and Renate

dear -empyreans-

As December begins please welcome two new moderators for the -empyre- list: Renate Ferro and Tim Murray (US)

Tim and Renate

Renate Ferro has an MFA in New Media from Cornell University. In addition to serving as Art Editor of the theory journal, Diacritics, she is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Art at Cornell where she teaches studio courses on electronic imaging, mixed media and theory. Her video installation on Jean-Francois Lyotard was featured in November at the University of Richmond, and she is completing an interactive video installation based on memory, familiar objects, and family movies, which will be installed in Beijing in the spring. Her projects range from retooled Super 8 footage of Lyotard, which she shot in the early 80s, to conceptual audio archiving with artists and theoreticians. She recently pursued her interests in toggling between new media and analogue art forms during a residency at the Experimental Television Center in Owego (Renate opened an experimental printmaking studio in Ithaca in the early 1980s). She's now planning a large conference on feminism and art, then and
now, which is scheduled for February at Cornell.

Tim Murray is Founding Curator of the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art (http://goldsen.library.cornell.edu) as well as Professor of Comparative Literature and English at Cornell where he teaches courses in new media, film, and philosophy. Tim has published and curated widely on new media art. He co-curates CTHEORY MULTIMEDIA with Arthur and Marilouise Kroker (http:ctheorymultimedia.cornell.edu), curated the touring exhibition, Contact Zones: The Art of CD-Rom (http:contactzones.cit.cornell.edu), and has served as guest curator and
selector for Meta.org and low-fi.org. He edited special issues on new media and cinema for Wide Angle and Sites, and just finished a new book, Digital Baroque: Temporal Folds, New Media Art, and the History of Cinema (Minnesota), and is writing a sequal on "Immaterial Archives: Curatoria Instabilities in the Network of New Media Art." Tim is working on a
project to archive -empyre- off-line in the Goldsen Archive.

Sergio, Marcus, Jim, Tracey and I are very glad to have Tim and Renate join us and hope that we can continue to deepen our commitment to incisive discourse on -empyre- through our month by month program structure throughout the coming year. Please help us all out: if you've got suggestions about topics and themes, please email Jim Andrews, our list moderator/manager, at jim@vispo.com and he'll share your note with our team. Also if you are interested in joining - empyre- as a moderator, please contact Jim as well.
