dialogue between Eryk and Brooke A. Knight. As usual, the atmosphere will be
warm and the fake oreos and conversation will flow.
ABOUT ERYK SALVAGGIO: Called "The Harry Potter of the Digital Avant Garde"
by the Dutch Press, Eryk Salvaggio has been creating internet art since he
was 17 years old. His work has been compared to "a more human Andy Warhol,"
and strictly adheres to his own "6 Rules Toward a New Internet Art." This
formula has led to articles in the New York Times* as well as mentions in
ArtForum, alongside several international exhibitions and talks.
Turbulence commissioned Salvaggio's "American Internet" in 2002, and he
curated "Duchamp's Ideal Children's Children: Net.Art's Brat Pack" for
Turbulence's Guest Curator series in 2003. He's currently working on
"MySpaces," a piece about the projection of self onto social networking
sites such as friendster and myspace, and a degree in New Media and
Journalism at the University of Maine.
Artist and educator BROOKE A. KNIGHT has been working with digital media for
over a dozen years. His current interests include webcams, the landscape,
and text in all forms. Knight is Assistant Professor in the Department of
Visual and Media Arts at Emerson College, Boston. He received his MFA in
photography from CalArts in 1995.
