Dear Empyre,

I enjoy lurking on the list as well… Outside of the below I'm currently working on completing my MA at the New School and will be one of the directors for ISEA in 2015..

All best!

> Definitely a lurker, I moderated a discussion back in 2009!  I worked with Tim during my undergraduate days at Cornell where I studied Philosophy and Physics, and more recently with Renate as a visiting critic in the art department at Cornell. In between, I did an MFA at Goldmiths, in London.
> I'm a visual artist based in London and New York. I work primarily in performance and video to negotiate a formal space between two attitudes of culture production, one of which we might call sincere, direct or intersubjective and the other we might call to irony, appropriation, postmodern or even just critical. I am interested in how the various strategies, tones and attitudes of appropriation that have developed during the last half-century shape the possibilities and limitations of an idea of sincerity, and the stakes of such an idea for the political agency of contemporary forms of culture production.
