Web, Cortland Review, Eastgate Hypertext Reading Room, Cauldron & Net, and
other web sites. His electronic poetry has been exhibited at many venues in
the United States, Europe, South America, Asia, and Australia, and he has
given interactive readings of his work in many cities. Kendall has taught
electronic poetry and fiction for the New School University's online program
since 1995. He runs the literary web site Word Circuits and the Electronic
Literature Organization's directory, and is co-developer of Word Circuits
Connection Muse, a hypertext tool for poets and fiction writers.


Michael Sheridan's videosonic art and documentary films deal with themes of
survival, sustainability, and the tipping point between order and chaos. His
interest in these issues arises from his experiences of families,
institutions, and societies teetering on the verge of collapse or recovering
from conflict and disaster. Sheridan's artwork has been exhibited at the
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Boston CyberArts Festival and the GASP
gallery in Boston. His work on documentaries has appeared on PBS, The
Learning Channel, The Discovery Network and National Geographic TV. Sheridan
has received numerous awards including those from the National Education
Media Network, the Columbia International Film and Video Festival, the
United Nations Association Film Festival, and EarthVision.
