I am currently making instalations and performance in the virtual world of Secondlife. This has been my prefered creative platform for the last two years because of the possiblity to meet international artists and bring together most 2 and 3D mediums, like multi-media, sculpture and animation, in real time.

I am interested in that which lays between, the area where binary codes and constructs collapse and cease to function. Gender bending and blending is in my experience the only area that truly confronts and breaks down all these codes.

Marlena Novak

I am interested in the social and philosophical implications that exist when one realizes that ‘seeing is not believing', since it is within the limits of our perceptual framework that we interpret and act within the world. My work focuses on the construction of realities through our perceptual faculties, with the conceptual basis of the work determining the method and material used in its expression. This has included the use of interactive digital electronics as well as low-tech means in exploring themes as varied as abstract narrative, boundaries relating to physical and intangible properties, issues of trespass, and the mating behavior of hermaphroditic flatworms.

Maru Ituarte

I am a video artist, living and working in Berlin. Among others, my fields of interest include aesthetics, philosophy of mind, phenomenology, developmental psychology and education. I don't consider myself very political, but recently I've been drawn to address (out of self-interest, I'm afraid) certain issues in cultural politics and human rights.
