new here, a little confused.

Hey, my username is aschlag and I am in the process of moving here from deviant art (AKA Facebook with drawings) to Rhizome. I just wanted something that was a little more professional and this seems to fit that guideline.
The one thing I understand (and plan to take advantage of) is the opportunity list, but I would like to know how to get more involved with the Rhizome community and how it works. If this is an inappropriate place to start this discussion, then I apologize.

Welcome aschlag! ヽ(^o^)丿ヽ(^。^)ノ

I'm really glad to hear that you'll be taking advantage of the opportunities posted on Rhizome's Announce. It's one of my favorite parts of the site, since it's regularly updated with new and great opportunities for artists.

To help you get started, I'd suggest checking out the ArtBase, the online archive of digital art, to get a feel for the type of work our community makes. Reading the blog is also a great way to learn more about new media art history, theory and criticism, as well as openings, upcoming events and other happenings. If you like to get a weekly digest from Announce and Editorials sent to your inbox, you can sign up for our mailing lists.

This is exactly how I got into Rhizome after a friend introduced me to the organization back in college :)

If you ever have any questions, thoughts, musings, etc feel free to start a thread here in Discuss. You can also comment on blog posts to get a conversation going. You can even reach out to me directly ([email protected]) if you have specific questions about how to use the site or Rhizome's membership program – I'm always happy to help.

All the best,

, Andrew Schlageter

Thank you Zoë :). I'll explore the Art base asap
