One of the aspects of this project that I have benefited greatly from is getting to meet new and very cool, friends and artists in my own backyard, such as the  crazy crew above and one of our finalists Sue Berg. I met Sue the other day for the first time when she brought in her Interactive project "Bee Aware."
She had me playing with her IPad in no time and I was truly entertained!(She is completely unaware of what an amazing feat that is to those who really know me:)).

Sue Berg's Statement


I believe in art as social commentary. Although I never spoon feed the viewer with content, it is there none the less. I work within a field of possibilities that require the viewer to think.

I believe in the creative power of technology. New Media requires a breaking down of preconceived notions. Technology offers the artist a vast range of expressive power. It takes all media that has come before it and puts them all in one place. New media is sculptural, painterly, photographic; it is the written word and sound. Technology as form requires science, math and design. It is a microcosm of our present as well as a modifier of our future. We examine our transforming society through the very system that is transforming it. We use technology to reinforce our content.
