Thanks to all of you who participated in the first week. As many of us, including myself, will be attending the SCMS conference next week in Toronto, responses may arrive a little late. But please feel free to jump in anytime and respond to the discussions we started in week 1.
Meanwhile, we have three more guests to join us in week 2:
Eleonora Oreggia (aka xname) is a London based interdisciplinary artist from Milan (IT), making performances and interactive installations. She studied at DAMS (Drama Art and Music Studies) in Bologna then worked in Amsterdam at NIMK (Netherlands Institute for Media Art) and at Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht (NL). In London she has been awarded an MPhil from Goldsmiths College and is completing a fully funded PhD in Media & Arts Technology at Queen Mary University of London. Her live compositions transform light and other electromagnetic frequencies in sound waves through self-built synthesizers and complex semi chaotic machines.
Wenhua Shi pursues a poetic approach to moving image making, and investigates conceptual depth in film, video, interactive installations and sound sculptures. His work has been presented at museums, galleries, and film festivals, including International Film Festival Rotterdam, European Media Art Festival, Athens Film and Video Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Pacific Film Archive, West Bund 2013: a Biennale of Architecture and Contemporary art, Shanghai, Shenzhen & Hong Kong Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism, and the Arsenale of Venice in Italy. He has received awards including the New York Foundation for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, and Juror's Awards from the Black Maria Film and Video Festival.

Joo Yun Lee is a PhD Candidate, curator, and writer working on the intersection of art, science, and technology in contemporary art and visual culture. Her research focuses on the technological modes of production, distribution, and reception of technical images, intermedia performance and installation, sound art, and architecture from the 1960s to the present crossing regional boundaries. She is finishing a dissertation "Sensible Communities: The Viewer's Speculative-sensible Experience in Ryoji Ikeda's Audiovisual Installation and performance of Data Composition." She was awarded Fulbright Graduate Study Award and was a 2013-2014 Helena Rubinstein Curatorial Fellow in the Whitney Museum's Independent Study Program, and teaches at the Pratt Institute in New York.
