New guest blogger: Nick Briz

Thanks to Tom McCormack for his series of media- and newer media-centric posts. Up next is Nick Briz. About his practice, Nick writes:

I am a new media artist living and working in Chicago IL. I have an associate degree from Florida State University in cinema studies, a bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida in film and video production, and a master’s degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in film, video, new media, and animation. I am co-organizer and moderator of Upgrade! Chicago and have curated and organized a number of new media art events, including most recently GLI.TC/H, an international noise and new media conference. As an educator, I focus on digital art and culture, having created and taught classes for summer camps, after school programs, and at the college level. My own work has been exhibited at various national and international galleries and festivals, such as the FILE Media Arts Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the Sydney Underground Film Festival, the European Media Arts Festival in Osnabruek, Germany, and the Images Festival in Toronto, Canada. My work is distributed through Video Out Distribution in Vancouver, Canada as well as openly and freely on the web.

Nick will be guest blogging for us through July 3.
