howdy [-empyre-] folks!
I've been enjoying perusing the bio-posts this month...
It's wonderful to be a part of an open-system so full of talent, insight, and passion...
In addition to being a longtime lurker, I've had the pleasure of participating in conversations about/around a few collaborative projects I have been involved with/co-initiated: criticalartware ("More than 'Push Play': the Playful Cybernetics of criticalartware" MAY 2004) && GLI.TC/H ("Glitched, Cracked, and Dirty Media" DEC 2011).
I thought I'd join-in && throw my TXT thru the tubes... Here it goes:
Jon Satrom is a constructive deconstructivist, a creative problematizer, a collaborative agitator and a systems spelunker. His realtime A/V performances, experimental video, net.art and artware have been consumed within various space-times across multiple planes. Satrom co-instigated the r4wb1t5! microFestival framework (2005-2007) and the GLI.TC/H conference/festival/gathering (2010, 2111, 2112). He often collaborates with talented dirty-new-media comrades (I♥PRESETS, PoxParty, xtalFSCK). He has taught and developed courses in the new-media path of the Department of Film Video New Media Animation at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2006-2012) and currently directs the Chicago-based boutique digital studio: studiothread. Sharing, bringing folks together, creative problem creating and playfully investigating structures though failure, kludges and glitches fuel his endeavors.
Some recent works that folks may find clickable:
Plugin Beachball Success
"Prepared Desktop" realtime a/v desktop performance
Performance opening transmediale  in Berlin DE, in cahoots with Kristoffer Gansing
A video (w/ downloadable assets) created for Filtering Failure at Planet Art  in Amsterdam NL, curated by Rosa Menkman
Satromizer OS (sOS 4)
The World's First Easter Egg Operating System!
Developed for Funware  at MU in Eindhoven NL, curated by Olga Goriunova
GLI.TC/H was a simple idea that was hatched upon the notion of folks gathering together and engaging/chatting/debating the issues/theories/concerns of failure, systems, art, && glitches. All events are free & open to the public and have ended up exposing an extremely diverse, amazingly deep, and somewhat quirky community.
A few clips of my meat-suit yapping about recent work:

I look forward to seeing more bio-posts roll in and future [-empyre-] topics and endeavors.
All the best to ever01!
