Dear Empyre Community,

I wanted to introduce the next artist for this month, Lee Tusman, who will
present the generative visual output of the Messlife virtual space. Lee
will send an email introducing this project in more detail shortly.

Lee is a New York-based new media artist and educator interested in the
application of the radical ethos of collectives and DIY culture to the
creation of, aesthetics, and open-source distribution methods of digital
culture. He works in code, collage, sound, and text. His artistic output
includes installations, interactive media, video art, experimental games,
sound art, websites, bots, and micro-power radio stations. His work has
been shown at museums, galleries, artist-run spaces, and virtual
environments. He studied at Brandeis University and received his MFA at
UCLA in Design Media Arts. He is Assistant Professor of New Media and
Computer Science at Purchase College.

Lee is an organizer with Babycastles, a NYC-based collective fostering and
amplifying diverse voices in videogame culture as well as a collaborator
with artist-run community Flux Factory. He co-founded Processing Community
Day NYC. He is a past organizer at Hidden City Philadelphia, Little Berlin
and KCHUNG Radio.

You can reach Lee and follow his work on Twitter at 2sman2sman, Instagram
at leetusman and Github at lee2sman.

Looking forward to sharing and discussing the project!

Also looking forward to introducing Angeliki Diakrousi and Cristina
Cochior's project, Temporary Riparian Zone, later this week.
