about audience. Hope we hear more on that. Looking forward to the
discussion as we enter our second week. Week two brings us three guest

Chaya Litvack is a second year doctoral student in the Faculty of
Information at University of Toronto. Her research centres on strategies
for archiving performance art in order to explore the relationship between
material techniques, temporality, and historiographical practices. She
brings performance practices in contact with archival theory with the goal
of expanding the ways in which archival techniques might foster the
creation of new approaches to writing performance histories.

Owen Mundy is an artist, designer, and programmer who investigates public
space and its relationship to data. His artwork highlights inconspicuous
trends and offers tools to make hackers out of everyday users. He has an
MFA in Visual Art from the University of California, San Diego and is an
Assistant Professor of Art at Florida State University.
