I am an artist, writer and researcher. My career began in the mid 1970's as a fine art post-graduate at the MIT Visible Language Workshop (VLW). The VLW was one of seven divisions that would in the early 80's evolve into the prestigious Media Lab. My experience at MIT was very rich in terms of the opportunity to engage with leading thinkers and practioners in engineering and science. It also afforded an opportunity to work directly with hybrid artists from diverse backgrounds who shared an interest in computing technology. My tenure at MIT also coincided with that unique moment in the history of computing when experimental investigations ushered forth a new generation of visualization tools and interactive processes.
