Dear Diane,
I could not agree more with the issues you raised in your recent posting. I
have been involved with art and technology since the mid '70s when I began
putting LED lights in my jewelry pieces and studying video art and making
holograms. I was driven by my interest in such artists as Nam June Paik,
Harriet Casdin-Silver and Bill Viola. There was a philosophy behind their
choice of a cutting edge electronic media that spoke volumes about the future
that we would all inhabit.
I have made a comittment to learning all I can about art and technology in
the art classroom. I am currently gathering information for a paper that I
can present to my administrator for updating our program. If you have
recommendations in the area of curriculum or lab equipment, I would welcome
your assistance.I would also like to quote you from your posting if I can.
Thanks for your strong position--it gives me some hope that not everybody out
there is a Luddite!!

gallery of our student work that should be ready sometime this year! Very
