Conceived in nine evenings and born in May '68, American media artist Andy Deck lives and works in New York City. Deck makes public art for the Internet. Much of his online work demands participation, blurring the lines between communication and creativity, and between independent and collaborative expression. He is a co-founder of Transnational Temps, an environmental art collective. He is the founder of Artcontext, which explores collaborative processes and media politics in the context of art and connectivity, blurring familiar formal categories with hybrid phenomena like network drawing spaces, game-like search engines, written pictures, and informative art.
