Katie Torn is a digital media artist and professor currently living in New York City. Her work employs computer programs used for Hollywood films and commercials to create experimental video works and digital prints that reflect observations on American consumerism, culture, and its impact on the environment and human body. Inspired by Cubism and Futurism, movements that strived to find new ways to express what life was like in an industrial age, Katie uses new technologies to express what life is like in the digital age where interacting in a virtual space is an everyday activity.

Paolo Cirio works as a media artist in various fields: net-art, street-art, video-art, software-art and transmedia fictions. His primary inspiration is in corporate and state interventions through the tactical use of information power, which is depicted and interpreted in his radical and controversial art works. Paolo carves information flows through the re-contextualisation, manipulation and dissemination of data via various media. His artistic work explores the social, political and economic influence of information, through the media and techniques necessary for spreading it. Paolo creates works that structure information, in which data take on forms that are able to influence a mass audience actively, while embodying innovative aesthetic qualities.

Ramsey Nasser is a New York based computer scientist investigating programming languages as mediums of self expression. By looking at code as a vehicle of thought, he develops new languages to explore the relationship between human imagination and machine instruction. Zajal, his first language in this inquiry, is an attempt to reduce the friction between an artist's creative vision and functioning software.

His other work includes software and game design. Recently, he collaborated with IGF-nominated game designer Kurt Bieg on Twirdie, a Twitter powered golf game that uses the world's conversations as its core mechanic.

Ramsey's work has been featured on NPR, in ACM publications, at Babycastles, and at the Game Developers Conference.
