Dear all,

a quick intro to this week's discussion: we're excited to have Mike Maizels
& Ana Peraica joining us from Wellesley and Zagreb respectively. Mike is
the new media curatorial fellow at the Davis Museum at Wellesley, and Ana
has written extensively on aesthetics as well as the philosophy of
photography and media. Their biographies follow below.

Looking forward to continuing the conversation -->

Michael Maizels. After studying photography and philosophy of mind at
the University of Southern California, Mike received his MA from the
University of Chicago and his PhD in art history from the University
of Virginia. His first book, forthcoming from the University of
Minnesota press, focuses on the artist Barry Le Va, who in the late
1960s, began to execute scattered sculptures composed of scattered
ball bearings, shattered glass, streams of sifted flour, and sharpened
meat cleavers. His second book will examine the intersection of
experimental art and music in the 1960s. More recently, his research
on the radical artistic ferment of the 1960s has lead into a larger
interest in newer forms of "variable media," including electronic and
digital art. He is currently the Mellon New Media Curator/Lecturer at
the Davis Museum at Wellesley College. He is currently preparing an
exhibition of the games of Jason Rohrer, which will be the first solo
museum exhibition given to a videogame maker.

Ana Peraica holds a Ph. D. in aesthetics of photography. After
graduating from University of Zagreb, in fields of art history and
philosophy, she became a researcher in art theory at the Jan Van Eyck
Akademie, Maastricht, where awarded UNESCO-IFPC, In parallel she
undertook three year doctorate course in cultural analysis, theory and
interpretation at ASCA, University of Amsterdam and defended her
thesis entitled Photography as the Evidence at University of Rijeka.
