Net artist, media artist, curator, writer, street artist, activist, educationalist and musician. Emerging in the late 80′s from the streets exploring creativity via agit-art tactics. Using unofficial, experimental platforms such as the streets, pirate radio such as the locally popular ‘Savage Yet Tender’ alternative broadcasting 1980′s group, net broadcasts, BBS systems, performance, intervention, events, pamphlets, warehouses and gallery spaces. In the early nineties, was co-sysop (systems operator) with Heath Bunting on Cybercafe BBS with Irational.org.

Our mission is to co-create extraordinary art that connects with contemporary audiences providing innovative, engaging and inclusive digital and physical spaces for appreciating and participating in practices in art, technology and social change. As well as finding alternative ways around already dominating hegemonies, thus claiming for ourselves and our peer networks a culturally aware and critical dialogue beyond traditional hierarchical behaviours. Influenced by situationist theory, fluxus, free and open source culture, and processes of self-education and peer learning, in an art, activist and community context.

TCPA and Palladium

BlankMore Microsoft nonsense...Corporate dominance over creative freedom.

'With existing MP3s, you may be all right for some time. Microsoft says tha=
t Palladium won't make anything suddenly stop working. But a recent softwar=
e update for Windows Media Player has caused controversy by insisting that =
users agree to future anti-piracy measures, which may include measures that=
delete pirated content found on your computer. Also, some programs that gi=
ve people more control over their PCs, such as VMware and Total Recorder, a=
re unlikely to work under TCPA. So you may have to use a different player -=
and if your player will play pirate MP3s, then it seems unlikely to be aut=
horised to play the new, protected, titles'.
