I'm pleased to announce that, as of Monday, December 10th, Ceci Moss has re-joined Rhizome as Editor. An excellent and forward-thinking writer, Moss is versed in a broad range of emerging artistic practices engaged with technology particularly media art and sound. In this position, Moss will oversee Rhizome News, the Rhizome Digest, our blog and reBlog, as well as contribute to the overall direction of the organization.
Moss previously worked at Rhizome as membership coordinator and, in that position, demonstrated incredible leadership and a commitment to Rhizome's mission and community. Independently, Moss has always been focused on sound art and experimental music, working variously as a musician, writer, DJ and curator. Currently, she runs the online contemporary art and music journal A Million Keys and, for the past six years, has programmed the weekly radio show Radio Heart which features experimental, post punk, noise and miscellaneous obscurities on KALX and East Village Radio.
After an international search, the Rhizome staff felt Moss' vision, writing and project management abilities would strengthen our editorial voice and mission to further discussion around new media art. Moss writes "As editor, I plan to increase Rhizome's relevance and connection to other art practices, engage larger pertinent issues such as copyright, locative media and mobile technology, and continue to drive innovative discourse that will appeal to our diverse audience. Rhizome's unique historical and community-centered position will unquestionably direct my efforts." Moss will work with our two staff writers, Marisa Olson and Caitlin Jones, as well as freelance writers to grow our publications over the next year.
