  * Andrew Gryf Paterson (SCO/FI) is a Scottish 'artist-organiser',
    cultural producer, educator and independent researcher. He
    specialises in developing and leading inter- and trans- disciplinary
    projects exploring connections between art, digital culture and
    science, cultural activism, ecological and sustainability movements,
    cultural heritage and collaborative networks. Strengths lie in
    hybridity, communications, organisation and network arts: the
    ability to bring together and involve people in creative,
    collaborative exploration, developing temporary communities,
    gathering unexpected elements and components as new spaces of/for
    cultural activity. What is left behind as social, digital, material
    and ephemeral residue of 'being t/here' has been a consistent
    concern. Archived more or less here. http://agryfp.info
