Who are you?

I am a Canadian-born New Yorker and a graduate of Shakespearean
literature. As a student in England in the early 90s, I was isolated so
I began to use email to get myself home. Since1997, I have been working
with Rhizome.org, an international platform for new media art
affiliated with the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York.

Why did you change from Shakespeare to net art?

Like many women, I found a lot of traditional scholarship alienating.
Exposure to contemporary art in the mid-90s helped me enter into a more
three-dimensional and open-ended conversation and I found the nascent
net art scene even more so. While online, I was encouraged to talk
back, have a voice, to publish a text, write back, make a website etc.
