BIO
R. Streitmatter-Tran is a media artist working in transit between Boston and Vietnam. His work investigates the liminal spaces that exist within and among performance art, video, cinema, installation, new media and design.

Former experience includes teaching fellow positions at Harvard University, research at the MIT Media Lab and a three-year stint with the U.S. Army.

ATE Conference: Massaging>Media
November 23, 2002
a week before thanksgiving!
.........................................

The ATE conference (art, technology, experience) is a one-day event presented by the Dynamic Media Institute at MassArt and AIGA Boston. It is a forum of artists/practitioners (filmmakers, performers, dancers, musicians, designers, writers, and illustrators) as well as theorists in culture, education, architecture, and philosophy.

The ATE conference is a collaboration, a dialog, a discourse, a lecture, a performance, a multi-disciplinary experiment, a multi-sensory experience and, for all of us, " ... a process of subliminally sniffing out environmental change." (Marshall McLuhan)

The ATE conference explores where we are, and what we EAT as a culture with regard to new media. It will be about ideas. No shameless self-promotion is allowed. You will feel that you ATE plenty.
