I submitted the following proposal:

My name is Scott Blake and I would like to apply to the New Genre Art Festival. PDF attached to this email. I have created several net art projects inspired by barcodes, pixels, and time.

Barcode Portraits with interactive scanning interfaces.

Barcode Counter tracks every visitor to my website in real-time.

Downloading Pixels captures the flow of data transmission using animated GIF files.

Every Barcode animation takes 300 years to count through the entire UPC database.

Mouse Pointer interactive art inspired by the computer icon.

Internet Clocks translate time into money, barcodes, and sign language.

Artist Biography:
My name is Scott Blake. I am a very frivolous artist and my work has been in fantastic art galleries. The New York Times, FHM, and Adbusters magazine have featured my Barcode Art, in addition I was interviewed on ABC World News Tonight and Tech TV. My website has been reviewed in 13 languages and my work is in private collections throughout the world. I was commissioned to create custom art for the actress Jane Fonda and also by the University of Ottawa in Canada. The creators of Photoshop recognized my artwork at the Adobe Design Achievement Awards, held in the Guggenheim Museum NYC. I received a B.F.A from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2003. I was born in Tampa, Florida 1976 (I am 32 years old) and I currently live in Omaha, Nebraska.

Thank you,
Scott Blake
