  • Cynthia Beth Rubin, US, is a new media artist working in still imagery, video and interactivity. Trained as a painter, she began working in digital imagery in 1984, before the days of easy scanning and digital photography. While still enmeshed in the thinking of abstract expressionism, her search for new influences led her first to Islamic Art and eventually to Hebrew and then Christian manuscripts and the historic sense of place. Recently, this sense of place has led to an exploration of the hidden microscopic life in our waters and she became an honorary artist in residence in the Menden‑Deuer lab of Oceanography at the University of Rhode Island.
  • Greg Garvey, US, is Chair of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts and Director of the Program in Game Design and Development at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut, USA. He is a frequent contributor at conferences and symposia such as ISEA and currently serves as a member of the ACM‑SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Committee.
