:: rick vermey ::

listserv moderator & contributing artist

Perth based artist whose practice embraces painting, digital printmaking, sculpture/installations, design, and public art commissions: a "digital convert" who spends much of his time exploring digital-media processes and developing web projects. Vermey is a past Director on the Board of the Artists Foundation of W.A., a member of the Imago arts advisory panel, and a graduate of the ANAT 1997 summer school. In 1998, he was 'Virtual' Artist in Residence here at the Curtin University School of Art, where he worked collaboratively with students to develop the website, "interSections". A central aspect of Vermey's process is collaboration. He maintains an active involvement with ~nervous_objects , creating hybrid virtual/real-space installations, the most recent of which is "terra_nova", a time-based experiment with remote sensing technology and satellite data transmission, developed during a 3 week residency in the northern dustbelt of South Australia. Another current project in progress is CONTACT - unstable fields of power, an international artists exchange, conducted online. This is a collaborative initiative of the Curtin University School of Art, in partnership with the ITB School of Fine Arts in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia.

:: scott mcphee ::


listserv moderator, listserv provider, & contributing artist

the artist who is not responsible for Autonomous Organisation. Autonomous Organisation, a loose collection of somewhat unrelated projects, is incorporated as part of System-X (sysx.org), an artist-run online project which Scot has administered since 1990. Scot is also a composer/producer and he is active within the electronic collective Clan Analogue. There are several websites, all of which you should visit frequently, and a CD, which you should buy. We would be happy to report there is also a book, which you would be encouraged to read, and a motion picture film, to which you should purchase a ticket and collect the merchandise thereof (consisting primarily of various items of fast food and a series of action figurines), however this would be lying, something which is generally frowned upon. We do not like frowning.

francesca da rimini ::

contributing artist

techno fiend and digital ghost: much of Francesca da Rimini's recent practice has occurred on the internet, investigating the artistic potential of negotiated email relationships, online virtual communities and web-based narrative architectures. FleshMeat, a novella about love and death on the net, will be published in 1999. Her work in progress, Los Dias y Las Noches de Los Muertos, uses the soft architecture and screenal bodies of the net to create a ghost work of counter-memories, opening thresholds of impossibilities outside of pan-capitalism. Francesca has recently received a 2 year Fellowship from the New Media Fund of the Australia Council for soft accidents, a net work exploring relationships between quantum physics and indigenous knowledge systems. All of her online projects are linked to http://autonomous.org/~gashgirl
