Fisher, Scott

Scott S. Fisher is a media artist, producer, and director whose work focuses primarily on stereoscopic imaging, immersive "first-person" display environments, and 3D books. Currently he is managing director of Telepresence Research,Inc. , a production company focusing on the art and design of virtual environment and remote presence experiences.


Gabriel, Ulrike

Ulrike Gabriel's work is concerned with the relationship between the body and its conditions. The work realizes interactive space where body and its conditions interpenetrate, where a person's body interfaces within a virtual world as a result of being triggered from data deriving from the body in real-time.

Holzer, Jenny

Jenny Holzer uses LCD images in interactive exhibits.

Laurel, Brenda

Interval Research Corporation
Brenda Laurel is a researcher at Interval Research Corporation and a writer whose work focuses on human-computer interaction and cultural aspects of technology. Laurel is co-director (with Rachel Strickland) of the Placeholder project, a joint project of Interval Research Corporation and the Banff Centre for the Arts.


Levin, Golan

Interval Research
Golan Levin is an artist and designer of artifacts and experiences. Before he joined Interval Research in 1994, Golan completed his self-made undergraduate degree in Media Arts and Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since then, he has focused on the design of expressive instruments, tools and toys for producing and playing with media.


Roehl, Bernie

Senior software developer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo

(519) 888-4567 extension 2607

Rogala, Miroslaw

Miroslaw Rogala has received international recognition as a video and mutlimedia artist. His primary accomplishments have been interactive multimedia installation/performances which incorporate synchronized multi-channel video and electronic sound with live music, dance, and performance. At this date, he has been accepted as an Interactive Multimedia Arts Doctoral candidate in the online PhD research program at the Centre for Advanced Inquiry in the Interactive Arts at Gwent College, University of Wales.



Stelarc is a performance artist whose work explores and extends the concept of the body and its relationship with technology through human/machine interfaces incorporating the Internet and Web, sound, music, video and computers.


Scofidio, Ricardo

Ricardo Scofidio is a professor at the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at Cooper Union since 1965. Scofidio formed Diller+Scofidio in 1979 with Elizabeth Diller at Princeton Unviersity. Diller+Scofidio is a collaborative team involved in interdisciplinary work that incorporates architecture as well as the performing and visual arts. They look at how media culture privileges unmediated transmissions (live or "real-time" events) and present work that occupies the space between actual and technological time: "live" and prerecorded broadcasts, "real-time" and computer-based imagery.


Scroggins, Michael

Michael Scroggins is a pioneer in the field of performance animation. The utilization of realtime visual nstruments in the creation of visual compositions of absolute color, shape, and texture has been at the heart of his work for over 25 years. His absolute animation works have been widely exhibted. He was recently appointed Director of Computer Animation Labs at CalArts where he has been a member of the faculty since 1978.
