Peter Luining Contributing Writer (Amsterdam, NL)

Peter Luining studied contemporary philosophy in the mid 80's. After his study he became active in the Amsterdam vj-scene. He started fiddling with computers, and made 3D animations in commercial jobs. He also directed video- clips. Unsatisfied with commercial jobs and his role of only doing images and video with music made by others he started to combine video with his own music. In 1995 the character of his work changes dramatically when he discovers the net and the relative easy way interactivity could be achieved by using webpages. After doing some obscure net performances, Luining first got international recognition with his work "clickclub", which he presented at the Transmediale festival in Berlin. This netpiece distinguised itself from nearly everthing at that time because of the way the user could and could not interact with its sounds and images. Since 1997 Luining's work is turning towards a kind of minimalism, while maintaining his earlier research of the dynamics of the net. A sidestep from his artwork, but still a further exploration of art on the net, was his work as the curator of the net.art exhibition "Net Affects" in spring 2000. Since then Peter Luining's work is changing from aesthetical to more formalistic and conceptual.

Garrett Lynch Information Architecture Developer/Contributing Writer (Kent, UK)

Garrett Lynch is a net.artist / new media artist, lecturer in Digital Media at Canterbury Christ Church University (http://www.cant.ac.uk/), curator, critic and theorist of net.art currently living and working in Kent, England. His works are hosted and documented at http://www.asquare.org/, the artists personal website.

His current work and research deals with online / virtual environments and the net.work in all its forms and uses. Creative use of online spaces to create, organise (curate), document and house new media art especially with regard to net.art. Not alone is the vast majority of his artistic work created within the framework of the net.work, its encoding and protocols, placing it firmly within the domain of net.art but his research also supports this.

By searching new forms of presentation and modes of collaboration between artists online, the ultimate goal is to enhance the presence of his own work and that of others to a position that is respected and valued as much as 'traditional' gallery art yet retaining much of the openess (free, copyleft, shareware, freeware etc.) net.art has encouraged since its beginings.

The first major exploration's of these issues is Bannerart, a step towards allowing net.artists / new media artists to dictate and control the conditions under which their art is viewed and distributed. Further work is currently in development which will allow the development of works online by net.artists. These are to be tools to do everything from the early planning of projects right through to the final documentation and archiving.

Educated to degree standard in Visual Communication - specialised in Multimedia in England and masters level in France (Post-Diplôme en Recherches Interactive at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratif, Paris), Garrett has previously lectured on new media courses at both Birmingham Institute of Art and Design and the University of Hertsfordshire, England.

Recent exhibitions and accomplishments include:
1) Exhibited and participated in the newformsfestival in Vancouver, Canada, 2003.
2) 'Bannerart.org' participating in the Total Überzogen exhibition at Edith-Russ Site for Media Art in Oldenburg, Germany, 2003.
3) '_pause' being nominated in the 16th Filmwinter Festival for Expanded Media in Stuttgart, Germany.
4) '_pause' participating in the Reload exhibition at the Istanbul Museum of Contempory Art.
5) Inclusion under net.art in the idealine project commissioned by Whitney Artport.
6) Julies Journey being nominated in Videoformes 2001 the Festival international d'arts vidéo et multimedia at Clermont-Ferrand, France.
