Despite my big silence on this list here is my bio. Paraphrasing Menotti, I am also a proud participant on the lurker category – it is against my will, sorry. 

All the best from Brazil.


Lucas Bambozzi (Brazil) is a media artist producing installations, single channel videos and interactive projects.

Was a visiting artist at the CAiiA-STAR Centre (Planetary Collegium, UK), where he developed an extensive research about on-line privacy and pervasive systems, as part of his MPHIL studies, concluded in 2006 at the University of Plymouth.

> My name is Gabriel and I have moderated a couple debates on empyre before, on topics like the denied distances of the cinematographic circuit, gaming subcultures and in/compatible research (with Magnus Lawrie). I was planning to do another on super-human agency, but teaching overwhelmed me completely!
> I have a PhD in Media and Communications (Goldsmiths, University of London) and another in Communication and Semiotics (Catholic University of São Paulo). Interests/ fields of activity include "cinema" and grassroots media. I often mingle research and practice, and thus ended up organising pirate screenings, remix film festivals, videogame championships, porn screenplay workshops, installations with film projectors, generative art exhibitions, academic seminars, and collective 3d-printed model-making sessions, among other things. Some of these works and research results have been presented in events such as ISEA, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid, Makeart, Interactivos?!, the São Paulo Biennial and Transmediale.
> Last year I published a regular "academic" book, Através da Sala Escura (br portuguese only, easy to find in PDF), which investigates the history of movie theatres under the light of contemporary art practices and VJing. Currently, I’m back in my home town, lecturing at the local Federal University of Espírito Santo (UFES).
